Undesignated Proximate is a typically innovative set of drum ‘n’ bass takes from dgoHn, surely one of the modern scene’s most forward-thinking artists. The production on the drums here is choppy enough to pass for breakbeat, but Undesignated Proximate’s fills contain none of the volatility that usually comes with records in the genre. Rather, these tracks are generally smooth listens, their drums coasting rather than clattering. Only occasionally do we sense instability, and even then dgoHn’s careful synth work always manages to keep things in balance. Indeed, on a cut like ‘Robin’s Windmill’ we find some dreamy faraway synth tones providing a pleasant sense of drift that is weirdly reminiscent of The Orb.
