Basic Rhythm: I Don’t Know What I Would Do EP

Anthoney J Hart’s newest Sneaker Social Club EP contains 4 tracks that are something like sticky dancefloor grime. The synths are fizzy and feel like they’re dissolving in acid but and the beats are dislocated but all of it manages to keep afloat. These aren’t bangers the way the last Basic Rhythm LP for Planet Mu was, but there’s undeniably some sort of strange unplaceable energy to them. The first side is definitely the more active and brain-teasing side; both tracks have straight up weird, squishy beats but the twisted vocal samples and synth pads point to more uplifting club vibes. The tracks on the other side are slower and more spaced out; “Annihilate” makes use of a familiar Grace Jones sample and “Plodding Along” does just that.
