Joe Craven & Human Resources 'PD002' 12"
Pressure Dome welcome in the new year with their second vinyl direct from the test-bed, a split EP showcasing two rhythmically focused beat-architects; Joe Craven and Human Resources.
Following a head-turning debut release on Scuffed Recordings, Joe Craven delivers two more imaginatively designed polyrhythmic workouts. Airy, distant pads and delicate percussion roll over driving kicks, giving ‘Hurt Potential’ its detailed futuristic landscape while ‘Dyeus’, with its high tempo distorted breaks, chopped vocals and distant piano riffs takes us to an altogether more abstract space.
On the flip, Human Resources takes us forward in his own singular style with the thunderous ‘Shaq Stem Edit’, combining cymbal heavy breaks, huge subs and prodigy like bass leads that mutate with club-shattering velocity, and on to ‘At Tanagra’, where pitching leads and sporadic, wonky mid basslines hold a tough, yet mysterious energy and drive.
Both enter the Dome with their individual technical form, the perfect additions to our collective of phonic explorers.
