Aus Music
With just one release under his belt, for London's Breaker Breaker, this from Haider Masroor is properly audacious. Opening gambit 'You' cares not about easing you in, a roughly industrial beat goading you to keep listening, giving snippets of texture here and there, a synth blast or some rubbery delay, before dropping ethereal chords and R&B vocals under heavy disguise. It's masterful. 'Yellow Cake', by contrast, bursts into warm machine jazz, meandering pianos and lo-fi video game noises. 'Robocop' is straight up gritty electro with deep soul.
