47 reboots with a three-track EP from drum & bass artist Torn.
After a year-long hiatus, Tommy Four Seven’s label will return with fresh music from the up-and-coming drum & bass artist Ivan Karasev, AKA Torn. The release is the first in a series of forthcoming EPs that designate 47’s turn towards a continuum of club music at the vanguard of hard-edged techno and percussive drum & bass.
Following on the heels of an impeccably produced full-length for Samurai Music, Karasev delivers three fang-sharp techno-adjacent tracks for 47028. Like his recent output, this EP careens through impossibly precise broken beat rhythms that ricochet across four-to-the-floor drum patterns and diabolic drones. “Tantrum” is the most full-pelt song on the release, layering pummeling industrial kicks over searing vocal samples, while “Grief” and “Ferrum Wood” showcase Karasev’s penchant for dynamic song structures that cling and depart from a half-time rhythmic backbone. Together, the tracks mark a zenith for one of the most exciting voices on the outer edges of techno. 47028 will be available for physical and digital purchase on May 20th, 2022.
Inutterably expert percussive soundscapes that live and breathe; listen to the enthralling harmonic detailing of the quiet moments; then eat a symphony of tribal drums to the face. Best in class. Egg Wizard
