Over on the flip Altitude keeps the beats a bit steadier, playing around with a fantastically wonky bassline that refuses to pin itself down into an obvious groove, preferring to keep the listener off balance with it’s odd rhythms.

You can grab this one right now from the Ronin Bandcamp, and if you want to find out a bit more about the label be sure to check out our Q&A with label boss Chimera.
