** Repress from the Livity Sound dons **The Bristol based Livity Sound imprint, run by Peverelist, Kowton and Asusu, is fast becoming a buy on sight label thanks to releases which seem to pay no attention to genre or fads, swerving between raw house, experimental dubstep and swung techno from record to record. This time round it's Kowton's turn to step up, and on the A-Side absolutely rips it up with the track's turn of the century grime strings and savage claps which sound like a more brooding version of Helix's recent drop on Night Slugs. On the flip he strips it right back with a thumping percussive creeper which makes impressive use of the most sparing of elements which would no doubt be best served in the darkest of basements. Awe inspiring stuff.
