History And Chronology

11e

After contributing to the fourth volume of the ‘Platinum Breakz’ compilation series from Metalheadz alongside artists such as Om Unit, Artificial Intelligence and Dub Phizix, London duo Blocks & Escher followed up with the ‘Moods/Razor’ twelve inch for label back in the summer. Known for simultaneously capturing the golden age aesthetic of the genre while pushing things firmly into the future, the bright straightforward rhythms of the former contrasted nicely against the paranoid, industrial edge of the latter. More recently the duo, otherwise known as Phillip Smith and Will Hansen, have made a return to their own Narratives Music label with two new tracks in the form of the progressive, broken rhythms and subtle bass of ‘Calla’ alongside the maniacally heavyweight, pneumatic workout of ‘Jimmy’.
