Heritage (Movement & Tribalist) - Reminiscence EP [Earful of Wax 001]
Reminiscence EP is the opening vinyl release on Earful of Wax from a massively exciting production due, Heritage (Movement & Tribalist).
Something of an emerging year for the versatile pair, 2020 saw them release one of the club tracks of the year in 'The Revelation' via Scuffed Recordings. Club support from Oneman, Anz, Peach and Jossy Mistucame before lockdown hit and these guys got to work in the studio. Overdue vinyl features have since come via Plastik People (alongside a legendary DJ Deller classic), Ruffset Records and a Scuffed vinyl sampler which saw The Revelation deservedly pressed to wax.
REMINISCENCE EP is their first full 12". A five tracker, with sides split between original Heritage tracks and debut solo material.
'Sequoia Night' opens things up, a half-step riddim that combines weighty bassline with breaks and signature Heritage, gritty euphoria.
'Heads Down' is a 130 ode to the noughties teenager grime instrumental. Raw vocal samples plucked out from the early cyphers complement the unique icey flow which nestles loosely amongst the less genre defining UK sound of now.
The B-Side delivers three. The first two from Brighton based Patterns resident, Movement. 'Box Fresh' is straight from the pre-dubstep, dark garage era, now starting to creep back through following a summer of high quality classic sounding Garage. Dare we say Horsepower-esque!
'Concrete Flip' follows in similar fashion, this time crunchy hats and piercing snares provide layers over the wobbley lows. The Burial like vocal catches the ear at every instance; RnB samples done best.
'The Cascade' is a debut track from Tribalist. The London half of the two showcasies his solo potential with an electro, breaks, 4/4 hybrid. The opening 2/3's build up in classic breaks fashion before an all out 4:4 tear up. Another one right at home +10% bpm.
