G.H.O.S.T’s latest beats on their own Goldman Records imprint were a pleasant surprise when they fell into the Dojo inbox, and it’s safe to say I’ll be keeping an eye on these guys in future. The Syrup EP features a tasty selection; the title track providing a deep, subby slice of atmospheric liquid to open the salvo, with soft pads and crisp breaks giving the tune definition and character.
On the flip things get a hefty switchup, with Swinger exploring glitchy, hip-hop infused territory at halftime tempo and Pecker providing a skittering hyper-syncopated drum workout. Last but by no means least Endless Blue heads back in a more fluid direction, taking it’s cues from the classic drumfunk and intelligent D&B of yesteryear. Vinyl fans can grab the EP on wax from Bandcamp and the digital versions should be available at all good digital stores from December 1st.
