- Thinner (Forward Strategy Group Remix)
Following acclaimed releases on his own Fifth Wall imprint (Resident Advisor's label of the month December 2013), Brooklyn producer Hound Scales makes his White Asega debut with three gritty and hypnotic cuts of smokestack rave. Named for the perverted preacher’s daughter in Flannery O'Connor’s Wise Blood, Sabbath Lillie Hawks continues the artist’s exploration into the darker midnight reaches of house and techno, finding influence in African rhythms, chugging train lines, Kate Bush and UK Jungle. The result is "a soundtrack to blood soaked progress and confused futurism" where fractured warehouse grooves tug and tussle with pummeling piston kicks, abstract vocal edits and howling synths, marking a fierce statement of intent from an important new name in electronic music. Pioneering UK duo Forward Strategy Group up the tempo with their sci-fi tinged remix of Thinner, blurring the harsher edges and warping the dark textures into a breathless and bassy synth-led killer.
