Albion Collective ends its single-digit days with soundsystem vanguards, LSN. Joined by AxH, the trio carve pathways in raw weight, deep progression and colour-submerged rave in ALBION009.
‘I Don’t Know What That Means’ grinds the earth to a halt. Silence suffocated by sub-bass effervesces with ghetto sirens, otherworldly electronic languages and London’s post-apocalyptic soundsystem underground.
‘Oscillator’ wobbles, ritualistic in its Far-Eastern, off-kilter melodies and occult lyricism. Tribal, patient steps and expansive world-percussion draws the dancefloor together on a higher plain.
The pre-eminent AxH joins LSN on the EP’s flipside, pouring grit into the bio-mechanic mixer of ‘Gone For Never’. Distant cybertronic growls stretch deep into heavyweight caverns. This collaboration hits as hard as it progresses, sure-fire for deep-rolling nights and drop-after-drop sessions.
Picking up the pace, ‘Rubberhands’ unveils neon tendrils and a slimy neurofunk appetite. The ready-to-rave half-time drumbeat and gun-finger-raising bleeps coincide with rough twists-and-turns into teeth-gritting mosh pits.
Albion Collective has established itself as a forefront 140 imprint over just nine releases. LSN and AxH round off the label’s formative years in style, before it plunges deep into double digits with ALBION010.
