Jay Bliss - The Art Of Doing Nothing EP
Opener Doing Nothing is the most 'traditional' cut on offer, a fairly chunky deep house floor-groover with bubblin' sub-aquatic synths, a meaty bass riff and a simple three-note piano hook. X then takes us further into experimental pastures with its lo-fi crackles, skittish rhythms and sci-fi synth noises. The latter's accompanied by a 14-minute Petre Inspirescu mix that may appeal to fans of Plastikman, Aphex Twin et al, though I have to say it's a glitch too far for me personally… but digital bonus cut Atonement lets us end on a high, as Bliss relaxes the tempo and gets his dubwise skank on.
Out: This week
