sonic matter flutter and twirl in the finely spaced mix, from micro-samples of percussion to dismembered
vocal snippets. With a limber, easy-strutting beat and some sub-baiting bass to boot, the track manages
to be both leftfield and utterly accessible all in the same breath.
Plotting a less obvious course, "Stairwell" comes to life in an atmospheric haze of found sounds and
shapeless drones, until a subtly swung beat slips through a crack and into the foreground. The same
embrace of intricate detail is present on this cut, but wielded in a more restrained setting that rises slowly
over the duration rather than kicking in from the off. Even the central melody comes draped in a finely
filtered veneer that implies as much as it elicits, making for the perfect foil to the unabashed extrovert A-side.
