Tectonic 99 de Walton
Tectonic 99 Commentaire
Walton drops his third instalment on Tectonic in fine style, calling upon Japanese influences to create a truly unique
sonic across both tracks in the release. Asian instrumentation meets directly head to head with the cutting edge sounds
of a UK grime-techno axis to great effect.
* ‘Praying Mantis’ captures all the charm of a fine Japanese watercolour painting by means of some spectacular midi-
harp programming. Hi-hats and detailed percussion set a shuffling pace, building the mood up before a beautiful harp
section unfolds and takes over, expertly programmed by Walton to sound as if a master harpist had stepped into the
room! As drums and bass join the party we have all the makings of a low-slung grimey masterpiece, both soothing and
energising in a perfect zen balance.
* Flip then for ‘Koto Riddim’ which again brings Japanese influences to the forefront of the track. Walton programs classic
sounding Japanese percussion sounds along with grunting vocal cuts and a charming flute-based melody. As the track
drops, it switches into a more familiar, grime-based palette of sounds, deftly arranged for most dangerous impact.
