After his grandiose cassette release Space Loops on No Corner in 2013, Birmingham-based producer Filter Dread resurfaces with his debut on Ramp. The glitchy aesthetic of the MIDI Space EP is a nod to the early technology used to produce rave tracks. With limited save functions and sampling space, the tracks were naturally restrained in terms of length: Filter Dread draws on this with his compact versions of dub-infused grime. Funnily pinging sound effects add a playfulness to ‘Clowns From Outer Space’ while sharp hi-hats cut through ‘Stolen Dub’ and flashy reverb fills up the spaces in between.
