Description

2022 edition. New cover art. Andy Stott's radical 2011 bonecrusher returns on its first new pressing for almost a decade, still screwing the dance and heads like nothing else with its lo-sprung suspended takes on boogie dub and claggiest rhythmic thumpers. The sludgy, slow-motion slug of Passed Me By marked a pivotal point when Stott swam against the grain of prevailing currents of the post-dubstep era's turn toward garage-techno and UKF-inspired percussive house. Working loosely adjacent to a then emergent witch-house sound, Andy screwed templates associated to Salem and Holy Other into a more muscular, thrumming style of drug chug more in key with early Actress, arriving at his own distinctive sound that sent us reeling. Between the intoxicating, syrupy gnarrr of "New Ground" with its Proustian vocal motifs, and the head-wobbling Pennine weather system compressions of its titular curtain closer, it's a stone cold classic; eliciting heads-down, wall-banging reactions in the side-chained thrum of "North To South" and a lip-biting MDMA-buzz come up with the thriller funk of "Intermittent", while sore thumb "Dark Details" gives shivering flashbacks to warehouse brukouts and "Execution" curbs the high with a K-holing drag. Delivering a narcotic, keeling dose of nostalgia that slings us back to late hours in the office and blunted afters with the goodest kru, Passed Me By was one of those records that made you reassess pretty much everything else around at the time, practically forcing you to play other stuff on the wrong speed if we wanted to DJ with it, or more simply letting it run and slowly shift temporal perceptions and paradigms in the process. Mastered and cut by LUPO. Clear vinyl; edition of 700.
