We’re not really down with this future garage buzzword, but if there’s one person’s music you could apply it to and not look like a tit, it’s spatial.
Spatial helms the Infrasonics record label, a hugely underrated imprint in FACT’s books who’ve put out three excellent spatial singles now, plus a Hot City vs Ike Release EP that’s arguably the best thing either artist have had their name attached to.
His own music meanwhile treads that line between techno and garage that’s so popular, but with wild moments of low-end experimentation that remind us of Dorian Concept and Shed. The last 10” spatial release in particular, last year’s ‘90729’/’90807’ is a mournful space station epic with skip for days, and we couldn’t recommend it more.
