SOLOMON GREY – FIRECHILD (ALLMOSTT REMIX)
London’s Black Butter Records launched the career of pop-junglists Rudimental and their roster is trouser-strainingly sublime, featuring as it does the likes of Woz, My Nu Leng and the sublime nu soul stylings of Joel Compass. Basically, they have an ear for quality. Two of their acts combine here to devastating effect with new boy Allmostt (whose track ‘Monsoon,’ I reviewed here a month or so ago,) remixing Oxford duo Solomon Grey. It’s a slick combo too, Allmostt dropping old school dubstep sounds over a snaking percussive line and pared-back drum programming while the sparingly-used vocal echoes and floats over everything.
