Tim Reaper makes his Lobster Theremin main label debut with a killer EP of jungle, DNB, and fast-paced soulful 4/4 techno. London-based DJ/producer Tim Reaper is an artist whose output over the last few years has been nothing but spectacular, releasing record after record of huge jungle and breakbeat for labels such as 7th Storey Projects, Repertoire, Meditator Music and Parallax Recordings, as well as his own standout Globex Corp and Future Retro imprints. His latest outing ‘Cityscapes’ on Lobster Theremin delves deep into his core sound and influences, with head high jungle breaks alongside chest rattling bass and 2-step laden grooves.
The A-side glides from the classic glacial synths and breaks on title track Cityscapes’ to the euphoric pitched up techno-hardcore of ‘Sequence 2’. Flipping over and straight into the minor scale 80’s soundtrack arpeggiations of ‘Make It Real’, loaded up with a whole ton of rave tropes, fills and melodic flourishes. Rounding out the EP is the 4/4 jungle of ‘(I Can) Feel It’, a light drifting groove layered over with undulating kicks and ethereal 90’s synth. A low-key liquid ending to this tour de force four-tracker of UK jungle.

Drawing off the sound of his earlier work, the Space Loop EP mashes together the more ambiguously low pass-filtered style of ambient house with the thumping and racheting sounds of space station manoeuvring, interstellar mechanics and cloud-skimming high-altitude plane excursions.
Locked in a rotating motion all of it's own, Space Loop builds layers of space dust, Earth-beamed transmissions and NASA ramblings alongside distorted rhythmic hat work and throbbing kick 'n' bass.
RV Jam takes the same formula but applies a shedload of heaving swing into the mix plus a delay-drenched crystalline-cave synth pattern that echoes into the night throughout the Southern Icelandic region under the Northern Lights.
Lastly, Filter Dub sees two outings for the release. The Tissu-leaning Original Mix buzzes with rippling acid lines and more dub-delayed pads and skittering percussion on a smooth mix-down. Whilst the LT-preferred Hard Mix ramps up the percussive medley for a more intense and raw assault of drums and textures.
