Callahan - Armshouse EP
(£7.99 Incl VAT)
Callahan is a new alias from a recognised producer.
On first listen, it's evident that this isn't a newcomer. The beat maker has astute taste, and a willingness to break boundaries which can only come from experience.
A digital release on Mele's Quandrants imprint last month helped introduce the producer's new alias, with a full 12 inch set to drop shortly.
'Armshouse' EP is a dextrous four tracker, fusing glistening techno production to sub-low adventures and the odd nod towards grime's jagged rhythmic sense.
Clash is able to premiere the title cut and it's a subtle electronic workout. Matching a continually expansive techno flow to a cutting, almost funky riddim, this is impossible to define yet could only emerge from the UK's soundsystem territories.
