From the moment the beat comes in on War in the Bando, I'm completely enthralled. I've only ever listened to this album beginning to end. It's an experience, and one of my favorites.
Favorite track: War In The Bando.
Klasey Jones returns to the fold for his first release of 2018, in the shape of the much anticipated "Starlight One" E.P. - a collection of tracks produced with influences from a neo-futuristic vision of the far east.
Including a few of his most sought after dubs, Tokyo Lifestyle and Told You So are two many of his early fans have been awaiting release for some time now and bolster what is another solid release from the consistent beatsmith.
Fans of both his projects on Terrorhythm will be enamoured by the luscious cinematics from "War In The Bando" right up to the fast paced neon tinged roller "Vertical Loops" which sees Klasey stray into higher tempos to close out his most versatile E.P. yet.
More big things to come from this young producer no doubt.

It took me about 3 listens before I think I "got" the appeal of wave music. Eventually I started to appreciate the dark atmosphere, minor keys, and piercing beats. I liken the whole experience to being underwater while the world above you thrives in chaos; under the surface, everything seems softer, muted, and ominous, but that doesn't mean you want to go up just yet.
