ColdR009 – Pinch

After a brief hiatus, Cold Recordings returns to form with a new release from label-boss Pinch, blurring the boundaries between dance floor sensibilities and experimental spaces. Both sides play at 128bpm making them versatile tracks to play out.

‘Water Bomb’ is finally available after many requests following its appearance on Mumdance’s acclaimed Fabriclive mix. Descriptively titled, the track leads with metalic pads and squealing electronics as a distorted bass drum builds to the break. From the drop, ‘Water Bomb’ lives up to its name, with a unique sonic leading the groove that is explosive in nature and aquatic in tone.

‘Cold New Worlds’ takes on a more hypnotic stance, entrancing and unusual from start to finish. Brooding pads and dynamic atmospherics hold together the robotic, fidgety percussive manoeuvres that rolls ever forward, constantly on the brink of collapse. Visions of parallel DMT-inspired worlds creep in and out of perspective as the landscape of the track unfolds.
