Where Violence delighted in switching genre and style, these new tracks sit effortlessly in their own space, defining ANATOMIST's unique sound. Over five tracks and more than half an hour's listening, trademark floor-shaking basslines, stripped down post-breakbeat rhythms, a hint of ‘that’ Bristol/London sound. ANATOMIST’s previous release, 2008’s Dirt Famous EP, delved further into the dubstep sound. Deep, dark and thoroughly messed up, Dirt Famous is built from the bass up. Layering pulsing electro and hip hop influenced beats over endlessly decaying delays, intricate percussion and screaming feedback. His last LP ‘Ingrate’ was released August 2009 and while the dubstep influence was still strong, there was a lot more thrown into the pot this time around. Bass is still the predominant force, backed up with the muscular drumming of krautrock, off kilter strings and King David melodies.
As dusk turns to dark, then to dawn, a soundtrack unfolds, a hymn to the hazy lost weekends of urban summers and nostalgic nights out. Paranoid whimsy from broken machines. Ingrate Reviews: 'Filthy, filthy dubstep' - machine.records. 'Thrillingly unsettling' Adam Walton - BBC Radio Wales.
