"Birds Of Prey EP"
Tirk welcomes youngster Sam Annand for his debut release, full of deep and dubby electronic beats, live drums and twisted jazz chords. The label didn't need much persuading in signing this exciting young producer, and this first installment shows why. Title track ‘Birds of Prey’ is a gloriously dubbed out and glitchy affair, with spliced and distorted guitars, bass lines to die for and driving drums… as live as they come. Second track ‘Sleeping Bear Lament’... Well... Nothing but pure keys heaven interwoven with dirty elecro lines, muted soundscapes and easygoing rhythms. Catch the masterful use of his back tracking on the tape echo unit... bit of kit! Into The Cosmos, is another foray into dubby waters, still with the crunchy off-beat drums, this time offset against lush ,soulful strings and a burbling seascape of sounds. Finally, ‘Packard’... A driving little electro rhythm, spacey effects, cow bells, all weaving in and out of a silky smooth, soothing electro bass line. Dub to the max here... In a rocksteady style.
