A collection of unreleased TFR music from the vaults
Long known for their killer releases on labels like Skam and Blueprint Records, this mix they've dubbed Ratio Sound Trials sees James Ruskin and Mark Broom collecting all sorts of fragments, sketches, and loops from the last few years that never bloomed into a coherent hour of head-spinning productions. Side A sees the first 30 minutes filled with intoxicating head-nod sonics, edging closer towards the skuffed hip hop beat tapes of the late 90s, flipping samples and wildstyle vocal cuts over programmed drum loops. On the flip the anti is upped with an increase in torque and tension over the following half hour, exploring the monolithic dystopian sound design they have mastered over the years, flitting between techno and electro influences with constantly shifting, tense rhythms. The Fear Ratio claim the material on these transmissions won’t be heard again, so listen in and grab one of the limited run cassettes while they’re still around.
