036 – Artifact

Crack likes techno. Had you noticed? Because we wouldn’t blame you if you’d thought we’d taken some time off because as it’s been in very short supply in our ongoing Crackcast mix series of late. So coming out the blocks like a man possessed – Bristol’s Artifact. Punchy UK techno-bass that wouldn’t be out of place in the tougher end of a Pearson Sound or Blawan set. Quintessentially UK sounding, but put together with enough variation as not to sound like it’s come straight out of a hard Berlin dance floor, the mix features a number of tracks by the man himself as well as lesser-known artists which suggests at some decent crate digging. Pitch shifting, hypnotic and reeling with pace changes and variation, the constant in the mix might be the consistency with which it moves and warps from one contrasting rhythm to the next. A stunning introduction to an exciting new artist.
