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.

Over the years, Caski's sound developed and evolved massively, eventually resulting in first full EP release on Synkro & Indigo's label EMF (Electro Magnetic Fields).
