Throwing Snow returns with the highly anticipated full release of ‘Loma’ for Houndstooth, compiling all the tracks from his digital four-part series plus an extended 11-minute head melting remix from Octo Octa (100% Silk/Running Back/Honey Soundsystem). Loma moves between break-neck stepper rhythms and deadly D&B deployment, ensuring that every element of the Throwing Snow repertoire is out in full force...
Opening with the held-back breaks of Simmer, the pace is immediately set with a heavy mix of ruffneck jungle beats and sharply cascading acid b-lines, the energy never lets loose, keeping a strong grip on the constantly building velocity that lands armed to the teeth with some tasered amen breaks and a strong testone signal. The shuffled breakbeat motion gets quickly pulled down a trance wormhole on 'Myriad' and 'Trébucher', where the glowing bars above offer relief from the punishing rhythms, yet the saw-tooth drums quickly come back for another round on the subtle, 2 step swing of 'Subtitles'. It's clear from the word go that this is some of the best material yet from Throwing Snow, his ability to carve out a niche within whichever rugged d'floor ready genre he turns his sights toward has never sounded so strong. Loma caps off a flagship year for Houndstooth, one that has seen the label present key releases from Penelope Trappes, Vester Koza, Marquis Hawkes, Pariah and Aisha Devi. Loma is a strong end call testament to Houndstooth's place as one of 2018's most essential imprints.
