Label: Civil MusicScore: 8/10 

Damon Kirkham’s last outing as Jon Convex – With You, as released his own Convex Industries Digital imprint – was seemingly too airy for most people, this despite being backed up by a gorgeously fluid reworking under his Kid Drama moniker. As if a riposte, Losing Time carries the sort of direct angular heft that is guaranteed to shake any variety of darkened rooms.

Typewriter clicks and electro claps add a swing that belies the straight laced nature of the track, a perfect anchor for the tube train rush breakdown that filters through the pivotal midsection. Tougher still, TX is like being hit in the chest with a large shoulder of lamb, the accompaniment for this beating being gnarled and twisted with deflating synths, with only the briefest of respite coming from a blissful piece of mid-track ambience.

It is TX that chosen remixers, Ore and dBridge, are tasked with addressing. Autonomic compatriot dBridge goes for a stripped back piece of slomo angular electro, with the other end of the intensity spectrum explored by Ore, opting for an experience that is like being trapped in a churning industrial sized washing machine with an assortment of pots and pans. The former edges it if you were to pit them head to head, adding an alternative angle to a comprehensively banging little package.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
