IRON022 Archon/Enslaved EP


Following a strong 2013, Iron Shirt Recordings has grabbed two tunes from Washington based talent Press to help kick off their 2014 campaign in a no-nonsense manner. Well balanced and focused, both tunes mesh into an immersive, punchy workout. On the A, ‘Archon’ hints of a long lost troupe with archaic strings and choral groans that bring life to an otherwise desolate soundscape. This short dropper wastes no time tossing listeners straight into a tribal gauntlet – rolling percussives drive fearlessly above massive kick-weight as hyperactive hi hats peak for earthly midrange growls that round out this organic stomper of a tune. Slightly twisted perceptions emerge as ‘Enslaved’ seamlessly drops from exotic whirs and grim delays into a dark, heavy dub flex and shuffle. Energy ebbs and flows with the introduction of equally curious synthetic creations before evolving into snare riddim two drop territory. As bass-heads gear up for what promises to be an exciting year in music, Iron Shirt and Press have provided a uniquely esoteric experience. – Drooka
