Flame 1 - Fog / Shrine 12"
Flame 1 - Fog / Shrine 12" (Pressure, 2018)
The Bug goes head to head with Burial with a battering ram of bassbin pressure that is Flame 1, cementing the first release on his freshly formed label PRESSURE. Spying those hours of the dance when the smoke machines are puffing but there’s nobody there yet, Fog finds them melding charred bass hustle with billowing grayscale atmospheres in a time-honored style shared by both artists.
On the flip, Shrine distills their meditative intensity to more suspenseful degrees with exceedingly brittle drums bearing the huge, brooding weight of a slowed down dread bass and glowering pads = minimal fuss for deadly, concentrated impact.
