Vinyl Retention: Dimlite

Wednesday, August 8th, 2012

Every Wednesday, Sardi lets us know what’s tickling his eardrums in the world of dance music…

DimliteAfter receiving accolades for his Grimm Reality LP last year, Dimlite returns with a new(ish) long player Abscission.

Newish, as the album is more of a continuation from Grimm Reality, composed of nine tracks that are (essentially) outtakes from the aforementioned LP. Recorded during the same period, Abscission is kind of the leftover material that didn’t make the cut.

So, is it fodder? Not really. It’s actually really cool music, as one has come to expect from Dimlite. My guess is it just didn’t fit in the bigger picture of the album in question.

At its core, it’s more quirky busted up beats with a barrage of bizarre samples (wtf does he dig these up) and tinges of vocal harmonies. Some tracks have a comedic tinge to them, whilst others display a sense of maturity and evocativeness. Yep… it’s really a clusterf&%# of sounds and emotions, that somehow… works.

Interesting music to say the least.

If you like what you hear, be sure to tune in to RTRFM’s Full Frequency between 3pm and 5pm, as Sardi and Dart explore the world of Drum and Bass and beyond.
