Vicious Cycle EP

Broken Records
Rowdy B-Boy bass music here from Leicester's Tyler Clacey, one half of currently-hyped duo Midnight Phulin striking out on his own. 'Dodgin Fedz' riffs off a looped rap vocal, then throws thunderous kick patterns and brooding low-end into the mix for an effortless blaze of ghetto cool. 'Hold Me' plumps for atmospheric vocals and gnarly b-line menace over two-steppy breakbeats, while title track 'Vicious Cycle' sort of wanders off a little into wigged-out weirdness. Still, there's more than enough here to suggest that it will be worth keeping an ear on Clacey's solo efforts.
