Electronic Explorations 092 – Untold

092 – Untold
24 Dec 2009

“I wanted to do something a bit different to the other mixes I’ve done recently. This one tries to join the dots between some of the housey UK tunes that have come out of dubstep and funky with US house that sounds like dubstep. (well it does to me anyway) There’s some recent collabs from me and Roska in there too”     UNTOLD

UNTOLD - Flexible, Brainmath
Not content with p*ssing all over the competition with a slew of scene defining records, Untold presents the primal-futurist swing of ‘Flexible’ on a 1-sided pressing for Brainmath. There’s no second guessing his productions at the moment, apart from the fact that they are guaranteed to mess up your dancefloor in brilliant style. ‘Flexible’ meshes the hype tension of the Wiley’s menacingly minimal Devil mixes with the sort of melodious thunk that Shackleton has locked down to programme a slyly experimental riddim made for DJs to screw into equally minimal gear or even find the right a capella to suit its itchy nature. Fans of Anstam, Joe, Ramadanman, and Roska gotta be quick with this one! Killer 12″.

UNTOLDI Can’t Stop This Feeling / Anaconda

UNTOLD - I Can't Stop This Feeling / Anaconda, HESSLE AUDIO
**Blue Vinyl** Tense and tracky jams from Dubstep-dude-of-the-minute, Untold. Hessle Audio push the boat out with their latest release, pressing up two of their most experimental and tool-like cuts onto translucent blue vinyl to get the wax fiends hot. ‘I Can’t Stop This Feeling’ is Untold’s second drop for the label, improving on his previous 12″ with a sharper palette of sounds and a dedicated dancefloor vibe stripping back to pure bass, tension raising strings and clattering drum machine samples. Ther’s barely any trace of melody to this track, allowing for streamlined mixing potential with compatibly techy steppers riddims. ‘Anaconda’ on the flip is just as sparse, maintaining an economical sound using only thick subbass bumps, finely processed percussion and cartoonish bleeps to create a oddly abstract and inversely funky riddim. Sick twelve – especially the a-side…….

Look out for “F – Energy Distortion [UNTOLD Remix]” in early 2010 … early doors contender for remix of 2010
