A thundering drum pattern drives the dark, atmospheric rumblings of Blawan‘s new EP ‘Long Distance Open Water Worker’. If Kevin Saunderson or Richie Hawtin had ever been in Throbbing Gristle, it would probably have sounded something like this.
With most people still trying to collect themselves after his recent Boiler Room session, Blawan’s new EP comes at you like a kick to the ribs when you’re already down. An upbeat peak-time number ‘Scarborough Harbour’ heads up the EP and it doesn’t let up until the closing bars of ’6 To 6 Lick’.
There’s no set release date for the ‘Long Distance Open Water Worker’ EP yet, but I’m assured it will be within the next couple of weeks. In the mean time, have a listen to his Boiler Room set below.
