Incoming EP is the debut release from Illum Sphere aka Ryan Hunn, featuring five tracks fusing the styles and influences of dubstep, detroit techno, leftfield hiphop and electronica. The tone is set with "Hyper", an extra bass heavy dubbed out slice of downbeat techno layered with crackles and dirt in healthy measures. "Incoming" buzzes and whirrs with robotic keys, broken up by crisp, whiplike drums. Next up, "Murky" has a hip hop feel combining submerged synth and sonics with sombre organ, a cow bell led breakbeat and a cut up, clipped snare drum.
On the flip "Too Much" moves into dubstep territory with a steppers rhythm and sub-lowend The track
is punctuated by stabs that sound like escaping gas and filled out with rewound vocal effects and
twisted melodica like sounds. "Too Much" is a remix of a track by Dozen, an up & coming Brighton based
producer. The session is rounded off by "Kaleidoscope", a more sedate piece driven by deep toms and soft snare intertwined with swirling, sinister keys and augmented by ethereal violin parts.
