The digital version of this release is an extended version exclusive to Bleep.

For the past few years Rabit has been a key player in the new wave of producers taking influence from the classic grime sound which has its roots in E3 and transporting them into new digitised realms of club-focused widescreen avant-electronic experimentation. Being far removed from the central core (Rabit is based in Texas) of this fledging underground, Rabit has no less made a huge splash cutting his teeth with razor-raw recordings for Glacial Sound, Soundman Chronicles and Different Circles - his track made in collaboration with Mumdance and Logos Inside The Catacomb is a sure-fire future-classic of this genre-less FWD facing worldwide scene, but it's on Tri Angle that he really comes into his own and flexes the full pallette of his production muscles with Communion. Having stated the LP is 'heavily politicised' in press leading up to the release it's hard not to hear the abrasive but delicately woven soundscapes within as a reaction against the suppression of modern life; be it under strict regimes of struggling to get by, nightlife the world over being destroyed by clubs closing down and the general vibe (here at least) of winter rolling in fast. But! don't let that make you feel this is an LP racked with darkness, while there are vast shadows cast over the sonic structures on show here, the feeling throughout is one of elevation and unknown pleasures. Opener Advent sets the tone perfectly switching between quick fire blasts of percussion and robotic destruction with a backdrop of heavy eye lids and Coil-like sheets of aching sadness before Snow Leopard recalls the half-heard echos of his Baptizm EP. Tracks like Artemis take classic grime sounds - guns cocking and bullets dropping, blade-like slashes of sound right through the middle of the speaker field but behind the macho weight there are more tactile, soft, and heavy-hearted eye- down feelings explored the further you dig in. Pandemic is full-on Robocop aquatics, while Glass Harp Interlude takes things down a slick route of glacial-like chords that's like Jam City's Classical Curves if it was harking back to early 2000's techno. Black Gates represents the most club-focused cut and explores new dub-rooted sounds not previously touched on while LostFile2 (an absolute highlight) downs itself with a fluid dub techno machine gun drum roll. Communion is a diamond in the current underground rough, and will have you going back for more, time and time again and points the way forward to interesting new directions while raising the bar for those around.
