After turning heads with an excellent debut for Hessle Audio in February, Ploy returns for his second release of 2016. For this record he relocates to Batu's Timedance, the fourth release of an exciting year for the label. Ploy shows his ear for striking, off-kilter ideas, whilst staying aware of dancefloor functionality.
'Iron Lungs' combines ghostly atmospherics with crashing ride cymbals and sub drops. It's as impactful as it is odd, striking a middle ground between the two.
The B-side continues the motif unrelenting percussion and textures. 'Number 24' bounces around a 4×4 kick and bulky congas, while 'Footprints In Solid Rock' strips back the elements to reveal a broken form, combining swung percussion and eerie flutes.
