The next installment of Grid Records comes from Italians Ltd Colours, four excursions showcasing a rhythmic masterclass throughout. Grid‘s fourth release comes from Italian duo, Ltd Colours. Showcasing a more profound side to the label, it adds another string to their bow. The EP is a masterclass in bubbling tension, leading to euphoric releases & pressured build-ups. The four tracks veer from each other with emotive chords and scattered percs, to more sterner club tools laced with fascinating polyrhythms.
Messy Objects kicks off the EP, keeping you on your toes with spiraling rhythms, slowly adding more and more textures to the track until it breaks down & rises back up to juicy sub-bass and a captivating kick drum pattern.
Quartz brings it down a notch, starting with low swung bass and a semi-sped-up mutant techno/dancehall beat, before switching up to a more busy, percussive workout. Patterns keeps it on the same tempo, but rolls out into a deep, polyrhythmic number with a slight UK flavour. Trance-inducing throughout, you’ll lose yourself in this lead track.
Finishing off the release, Projectserjjj flips it with a 4×4 driver, laced with undulating rhythms and electro tinges. It samples a perfectly modulated vocal throughout and is a perfect end to a stunning EP.
This release is a pivotal moment for Grid‘s catalogue, bringing another dimension to Clad’s fantastic project.
