Following impressive releases for West Norwood Cassette Library and Jimmy Edgar’s Ultramajic, London bass producer and multimedia artist Spatial rebooted his own Infrasonics label with the first installment in the planned three-part Emergence series. Emergence #2 sees him continuing to find fertile ground at the collision points between techno and dubstep. While both tracks lean towards the minimal, Spatial certainly knows how to keep the body engaged. ‘Reanimator’ hits the senses like a toaster to bathwater – all burbling low end, short-circuiting FX and fidgety percussion. ‘Tensegrity’ is a more tech-y proposition, with fizzy synths like the dying seconds of a Catherine Wheel. Everything is constantly threatening to veer off-grid – as soon as you think you’ve got your bearings you’ll doubtless be thrown off course again.
