Rognvald 'The New Selecta Vol.3' 12"
Rognvald returns with his third installment of The New Selecta series and things are starting to get lively. Overall it's a more breakneck affair than the previous two editions with four more offerings of future-old skool drum mashup.
"Hakon", with it's smoke-stained sample abuse and distorted urban atmospherics reminiscent of mid-noughties London squat parties, kicks things off before sliding into the sexed up RnB grooves of "Foreshaddow". On the flip side "Earldom Pollywax" flexes harsh rave against a platter of chopped amens and wide Reese basslines. The EP closes with "Depot Drum" featuring Morris Wotherspoon on vocal and Irish bodhran drum duties. One of his moodiest tracks, Richard kicks forth rhythms of doom dark enough to summon lysergic demons into the rave.
