Tune of the month
Kyrist 'Venomous' (Dispatch LTD)
Gritty tech grooves have been Kyrist’s calling card as she’s slowly edged towards the centre of the radar over the last three years – and now, as Dispatch’s first-ever female solo release, the mission just got real. The title track of this outstanding full EP is irresistible: check the way those synth growls bubble and circulate in step with the dancing snares, causing hypnotic sonic ripples, like a dark cloak whirling and scything through the soundscape. Dancefloor tech at its best.
