Continuing his multi-faceted adventures on his own label away from the usual Hessle Audio fun and games, Pearson Sound reaches towards his keenest party-starting instincts with this essential pair of future-minded floor quakers. "Thaw Cycle" rides atop an irresistible garage bump with plenty of alien percussion spitting at its core, while the melodic touches add a great deal of depth and mystery to the proceedings. "Freeze Cycle" meanwhile taps into Hood-inspired levels of cyclical techno minimalism to great effect, showing a different side to an ever-shapeshifting artist without losing that perfect balance of immediacy and the unexpected.
