Communications System

Barba
Sherard Ingram operates on a different level to other producers, and this release is a reminder of his formidable skills. The title track is a labyrinthine swathe that revolves around a wiry rhythm, dissected percussion and a mysterious vocal sample, while ‘IP Ping’ sees him venture farther down the wormhole as rave stabs, blasts of noise and Drexciyan chords collide over a deconstructed, electro-funk groove. ‘Lurker’ is faster still, but like the Aubrey remix of the title track, strings and synths insinuate their way into his complex, idiosyncratic arrangements. No one does electro like Stingray.
