Ltd 10" Vinyl. Dutch producer TMSV makes his return to Cosmic Bridge after selling out his debut EP, Over Out. ‘Jazz Error’ b/w ‘Calavera’ is a focused effort with a double dose of 160bpm sound system riddims pressed to 10”.
‘Calavera’ cuts a direct line between bass fetichism and rhythmic tension as a heavyweight modulated bassline rubs against cut-up breaks and punchy drums. A sprinkling of vocal samples and hardcore leads add to the mood without distracting from the specific purpose of moving the crowd. On the flip ‘Jazz Error’ takes a more traditional approach for a no-less effective result: the track’s rolling drum and bass groove provides a backbone for percussion, dub flourishes, flute melodies and aggressive synth lines to play against each other in turn, providing a contrast of emotions that’s all wrong yet so right.
TMSV’s latest excursion for Cosmic Bridge affirms his talent as a producer capable of marrying club music and sound system sensibilities effortlessly.
