Contour | Skip to main content
Activa & Simon Bostock


Rare in the instantaneous digital era, but this number arrived with some advance buzz about it. Nonetheless, its charms were initially somewhat indistinct. As ever, down in the engine room, Simon & Activa raise all kinds of hell, but up top the picture’s less clear. Sometimes (as was ‘Contour’s case) you need to hear a track in a set context to really appreciate its potential; there's a devilishly effective, blink-n-miss lifty key change in the drop. After that — yes, indisputably, the track owns a pearl in the shell moment.
