From long time RBP favourite Geiom comes “Black Screen”, an inspirational new album out on the renowned Future Garage label Frisjfo Beats. Having heard little from him in recent times and knowing the skill of the man on the buttons we were pretty excited to pick this up and get it loaded into the player.
Starting with “Hem – 1 button”, stuttered percussion skips back and forth over the pitched synths nicely displaying the rough, staggered feel which prevails throughout the album. “Pucker Lips” stands out with an infinitesimally sliced flute breaking out over a crisp 2-step riddim.
Later on, 4×4/Bassline vibes push unhinged melodies on “Besk”, and “Adhafera” delves through classic bass synths which bound over a frenetic Drum & Bass beat. Eclectic in it’s scope and twisting each genre to fit, the album shifts direction ceaselessly with each listen bringing new reward – a worthwhile purchase for any bass music enthusiast.
