2023, 12″, Hessle Audio.

The Hessle Audio label celebrated a big birthday in style recently and rightly so. It has long been a pioneering outlet for always cutting-edge electronic sounds loosely couched in bass music but often involving so much more. This latest comes from Toumba who made a fine outing at the end of last year and starts 2023 on just as solid a footing. ‘Istiban’ is stripped-back body music with a smattering of tin-pot percussion and dark bass. There is more broken beat work and off-grid percussive inflection to ‘Petals’ then ‘Hazzeh’ layers up tropical synth sounds into a humid club cut before closer ‘Identity Crisis’ offers an introspective melody and funky broken beat patterns. –  Juno
