Stiver – Hollow EP | Noisy Meditation

October is shaping up to be a great month and our ears have been busy. Istanbul producer Stiver dropped the ‘Hollow EP’ back on the 14th and it’s only now we are getting the chance to give it a proper listen and comment.

Fans will be pleased to hear that deep and meditative 2-step breaks are the staple throughout. ‘Hollow’ is a taut introduction with a steadily building string section and pensive vocal that increases the tension step by step. ‘Paralyzed’ is no less emotive and builds the pace well with filtered organs and cavernous percussion. In ‘Just Friends’ we are given hints of Stiver‘s recording environment with sequestered winds and echoing percussion cinematically alluding to the far away bustle of a large city at night. Finally on ‘Merged’ the desolation is offset by a faint message of hope that rolls out nicely with shifting beats that clink and shuffle over swarming choral harmonies. Masterful work, well worthy of its place in the playlist – check the links below.

Returning from a heavy Jubilee weekend out on the Crab Nebula, Killian miscalculated his re-entry into the Earth’s atmosphere last week meaning he could not make the show. Last contact was made before he attempted a slingshot around Venus, which if successful should hopefully see him back here in a fortnight. God speed.

In his absence 1nejack plunges into the unknown on a journey through new and very awesome worlds of music. We have post-dubstep flavours from Stiver and Maths Time Joy, a filthy bit of freeness from Posij, deep tracks from Sparc and Seven, lyricism from Fliptrix and just plain utter flipped out weirdness from the likes of Lockah and Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs.

It’s also competition time again this week as we give away two tickets to Chew The Fat! Club‘s party down at Cable on the 15th. Just send names for the guest list to robotbodypop@gmail.com and winners will be picked randomly by the 13th June 2012.

Our mighty Transmit mix this week comes from a long-time favourite on this show – Janner. This mix also sees him delving into his roots in Breaks and Drum & Bass, occasionaly drawing for some of his own farm fresh dub plates as he steers us through a kaleidoscope of space age rhythms. Essential listening for the explorers out there. Grab it now and open your mind!
