Fresh cuts from the Hessle Audio camp are delivered by Bristolians Kowton & Pev (aka Peverelist).
Clean, minimal percussion is the order of the day from this latest release and Kowton makes his first contribution to the label. The A side in particular seems to nod to the aesthetic of Pearson Sound's 'Clutch'. 'Raw Code' takes this spacious aesthetic and tightens it into a more regular and dancefloor friendly rhythm, while adding Kowton's grime style string section. The real selling point of this track is the interplay between ambient melodic noise and spacious percussion, each set against a booming jungle-esque bassline - driving and deep. The B-side, 'Junked', sees the pair working on a '4 Club Use Only' style beat. Minimal, spacious and repetitive, punctuated by the occasional hard hitting 909-tom flourish.
