Micron/Swing Left

Real Time
The talented Stephen Brown has changed direction since he returned to music-making. Gone are the hyper-kinetic rhythms of releases on Djax. Nowadays, he is more likely to be making the kind of reflective, bass-heavy grooves that feature on his latest Real Time release. ‘Micron’ features cinematic, textured soundscapes, but is lent some dancefloor bias thanks to its snappy percussion and nagging bassline. As its title suggests, ‘Swing Left’ is a swinging rhythm, full of jazzy nuances and sees Brown veer into the space once occupied by Ian O’Brien.
