Weekend Collision – Origins of Us
After a substantial hiatus Matt Sublette (Weekend Collision) returns with his hardrive clearing re-emergence: "Origins of Us." Compiled from various works over the past few years "Origins of Us" sets the table for Weekend Collision's upcoming output on Hoodie Monks Music.
Weekend Collision is a genre-bending artist who often takes House, Dubstep, Drum & Bass, Downtempo, and combines them to into one. Recently concentrating on remixing indie and hip-hop artists his originals are what people are starting to notice.
"Origins of Us" reveals Weekend Collision's uncommon combination of lush pads, minimal glitched out beats, eerie vocal edits and 2-step rhythms that could be described as "future garage."
How Deep - sets the bar with pulsating kicks that accent the vocal cry of "How Deep is?" before adding a subtle but grinding synth groove.
Fever Pitch – begins spaciously giving room for the clean, minimal broken beats, glitched vocals and chopped up chime like synths that carry throughout.
Origins of Us & Love – both continue Matt's elegant use of vocals as percussive or spatial elements over simple electronic piano chords, tidy snares and shuffled 2-step percussion.
Upward – departing from the faster 2-step grooves that link the EP "Upward" is a more instrumental hip-hop track with an orchestral looping rhythm and subtle wobbling sub-bass pulses.
You Can't – finishes off the EP with echoed call and answer synth stabs woven through a sparse kick/snare groove ahead of darker wash out bass pads and floating detuned vocals.
