Alexander Lynn This debut EP is something that I personally have been waiting a long time for. Ever since I first heard Plastician drop some of their earlier work I have been following this project very closely.

Hearing Vectors so many times over leading up to this release, it never wore thin. It is one of those tracks that evokes so many emotions, and really paints vidid images in your mind. This also holds true for the rest of the EP.

If this is a representation of whats to come, I can't wait. Favorite track: Vectors.

Yung Dave After making rounds across the grime scene in the UK, the elusive Silk Road Assassins trio make their debut. Each of the tracks sound wonderfully vibrant, colorful, but menacing, eliciting influences from grime, trap, and sci-fi anime OSTs.

It's like a crossover between grime, Chief Keef instrumentals, and Ghost in the Shell or Psycho Pass.

that's right this is probably the closest thing we'll get with chief keef, grime and anime 10/10 Favorite track: Defect.

Niccolo Brown Stunningly bleak and beautiful EP of dystopian (overused word I know but bear with me), slow and mournful, grime sensuousness that draws you into its dark world of of paradoxes and pulchritude before you've even had chance to draw breath (which you will hold throughout its duration). Quite where Planet Mu finds these wonders is a mystery and I'm perfectly happy for things to stay that way. Glorious and gorgeous.

about

Silk Road Assassins are Tom E. Vercetti, Lovedr0id & Chemist, who met while studying music technology and composition and discovered they had similar tastes and ideals. The project was formed after they began experimenting with combining the academic study of sound design with their personal musical interests. The original aim of the project was to combine their shared interests in grime, drill and club music with film and game soundtrack composition.

The EP follows a loose narrative set in a retro-futuristic/dystopian city, with development into game music in mind; it’s dance music that has been crafted with an ear for widescreen enveloping sonics. It opens with the scene setting ‘Citadel VI’ dropping into the atmospheric glide of ‘Shaded’ with its camera sounds and energetic bass, kicks and claps. The mood darkens with the punchy ‘Defect’ as the track uncurls through a vortex of gated chords. ‘Cryo Enemy’ returns to a mournful trap with Gamelan and gongs splashing gently across rolling kicks and snares. ‘Vectors’ luxuriates in deep bass and trap snares as clouds of chords and arpeggios rise and fall. ’Akwraith’ rolls out with a nervous mood followed by the ambience of ‘Hollow-Point’ which finishes the EP where it started, warm and glowing.
