After a profound year of critically-acclaimed releases, Montreal’s Infinite Machine is ending their year in glorious fashion with the much anticipated return from Brooklyn producer, singer & drummer Seafloor. The prolific creator and collaborator follows up his highly lauded Lure EP on Astro Nautico with a collection of emotionally-potent yet club-ready Juke/Jungle/Bass hybrids that pay as much respect to London as they do Chicago.
Setting the right first impression, Let Me Go is a gentle hike along the water’s edge, soothing and relaxing before tossing us into the rapids with rolling, visceral Jungle. All I Need takes that organic, pulsating vibe and brings it to a soft cinematic level, swapping the Jungle for Juke and echoing contemporaries such as Machinedrum and Om Unit in the process.
Feelings Gone is the sinister card in the deck, overlaying Jungle/Juke hybrid percussion on a Rave/Dub foundation, casting a dark, gritty shadow meant for sweaty walls and foggy air. The final original, Nothing Is Sacred, delivers closure with a brooding-yet-airy atmosphere that rides contemptuously above propulsive, broken Jungle/Juke rhythmic exercises.
In true Infinite Machine fashion, Seclusiasis affiliate Warsnare gives a darker vision of Let Me Go, cranking the energy up a couple notches with a shower of rudeness. In contrast, Russian wunderkind Gillespy takes Feelings Gone out of the throbbing warehouse and drops into the trap with a proper 808 workout and a sprinkling of gangster tears.
