vDark Sky come to Blunted Robots on their best
release to date, following well received early
entries for Black Acre and Pictures Music, and
remixes of The XX and Nelly Furtado. As those
records showed, Dark Sky are bang into their
drums. On A-side, 'Highrise', crisp and
clinical patterns are mirrored by percussive
melodies, all minimal and slinky like some
Eski-boy special. 'Armour' is darker, more
hardcore spirited and grazing, built from
walloping bass hits and speaker rattling
machine rhythms akin to recent Boddika moves.
Tipped for fans of Mickey Pearce,
Instra:mental, Untold etc.
