2 cuts of thawed out up-jumped house. DJ support from Gilles Peterson, Benji B, Ben UFO, Joy Orbison, Julio Bashmore, Floating Points, Daphni, Four Tet, Mary Anne Hobbs & more. Each side is built on a typical foundation: a lopsided drum loop repeats until you start imagining subtle changes in its clockwork tick. "Thaw Cycle" is the most dynamic, percolating and bubbling with the introduction of a piano sample that Kennedy finesses. He finds small revelations in the twist of a filter knob, highlighting his ear for repetition and decay. "Freeze Cycle" (which irked Sleeparchive by sampling "Elephant Island" without permission) sinks into a more cerebral and detailed soundscape. This time, spacey synths and trigger-happy drum programming bore forward with the single-minded determination of techno, though still bounce with a playful skip. It's neither here nor there—like most Pearson Sound tracks—and it's excellent.
