Tim Reaper: Hardcore & Rubble

Just weeks after delivering his first Essential Mix (though every single one of his mixes are truly essential), Tim Reaper just dropped a record on Sneaker Social Club. “Outer Realms” has oldskool darkside breaks and thick, cloudy atmospherics, just a beautiful hardcore potion that keeps on flowing. “Heavy Duty” is way more sci-fi with a slight ragga edge, and the breakdown where it feels like staring into the cosmos is truly gorgeous. “Agony Tonight” eases into ragga with some smoother dancehall/lovers rock sounding vocals, and simmers but doesn’t boil over. “Bulletproof” has fast, trippy breaks and a brief sample telling you to “bring a bulletproof vest”. It skips and glimmers, sounding excited but plagued by a fear that won’t go away.
