Release Date - 26th October 2018
Samurai Music's Russian connection - Saint Petersburg-based Torn has refined his hi-tech dread to maximum efficacy since his solo vinyl debut on Samurai sister label Shiro in 2017. The Internal EP sees his sculpted malaise reaching a creative peak, completing construction on a distinctive desolation he now inhabits like a second skin. 'Acheron' - an inevitable collaboration with Homemade Weapons, sees these two masters of menace fusing their rhythmic prowess into a sleek, malicious tear, while the 3 solo tunes display Torn's newfound artistic maturity with pride and vigour. Sharpened breakbeat spears are deftly welded to Torn's pounding pulses of gloom, with lead track 'Internal' being the most dominating stylistic showcase on the EP. A forceful statement from one of drum and bass music's more promising new talents.
