Linear and K2T combine on ‘Icebreaker’
After the success of his track ‘It’s Jazz Half The Time’, which released last year alongside standout tracks on Differential Recordings and Modular Carnage Recordings. Now, Detached Audio welcomes Linear back to the label for his debut EP. This EP shows the maturity of this rising artist’s sound, while also showcasing why he is a name to watch.
Up first, ‘Droplets’ is the classic, quirky but deep sound we’ve come to love from Linear. A bouncy lead hook coupled with piano trills and saxophones gives us an infectious track suitable for both the dancefloor and at-home listening.
Our premiere ‘Icebreaker’ follows this, with Linear bringing in the talents of label boss K2T. Their joint effort results in a funky dancefloor smasher. Rugged basslines, with the occasional glimpse of guitars and brass, make this a track that perfectly blends different styles of Drum & Bass together.
The title track, ‘Peripheral Vision’ offers a deeper and calmer vibe on the EP. Skittish percussion is coupled with mellow hooks and strings to showcase how Linear can easily explore varying styles and emotions in his music.
To close out the EP, Linear shows his skill in other genres with downtempo soother ‘Unknowing’, which still carries his signature sound effortlessly.
Linear has seen a massive amount of success over the last few months, with support throughout the scene, including from us at data transmission. His ‘Peripheral Vision’ EP adds another string to his diverse bow of releases, and will only catapult him further in to the limelight.
