Flipping the switch and marking a label FIRST in the process, follow along with us as we dive deep into the 120 bpms of Kodama and his debut outing on the imprint. New times, fresh sounds, and we could not be happier! Kodamas debuts on FORCE brings a fresh sound never before heard at Force. Fans of Tempa, Deep Medi, DMZ, Hyperdub and that low slung deep original UK dubstep sound will want to pay attention to this masterful work from Kodama.
REVIEW FROM JUNO RECORDS:
“Following on from a seriously impressive run of releases, we see the magnificent Kodama link up with Force Recordings for a very impactful two tracker, exploring the vast depth of soundscaping possible within the lo-fi end of UKG. We kick off with the stunning title track ‘Almost Made You Cry’, a Burial-like epic dripping in sumptuous reverberations and powerful bass warbles, taking us somewhere we have never visited before with a truly outstanding original creation. On the flipside, we emerge from the fog somewhat as we are greeted by a much more stripped back bop in ‘Blurred Faces’, another emotive masterclass in 2-step, this time pushed forward by the heavily reverberated vocal lines and potent bassline below.”
