Primitive World and Yør return to Obsession Recordings, this time for a split E.P. from the pair. The brainchild of Matt Didemus (aka half of Canadian duo Junior Boys), the label is only on it’s second release but is definitely showing promise.
Primitive World‘s ‘Purple Caps’ opens proceedings, with filtered loops oscillating around percussive bursts and distorted basslines. ‘Tides Of Lust” ‘s protean techno ups the urgency with the phantom punch of its caustic toms, skittering percussion and low-res tones that ride the steady pulse of the 808 subs.
‘Rites Of Passage Pts. 1 & 2’ see Yør delivering steady rhythms and throbbing bass with Pt1. vibrating with intensity and capped off by a restrained acid line and rolling snares. Pt 2. rounds out the package with a cut that’s more on a house vibe, both jacking and haunting in equal measure.
A really quality release from the evolving label. Very excited to hear more of what’s to come on it.
