Incoming EP is the debut release from Illum Sphere aka Ryan Hunn. After Djing at Sketch City & Hoya : Hoya in Manchester for a number of years, whilst guesting at reknowned clubs such as Low End Theory ( L.A ) and Friends & Family ( London ), Ryan is finally coming out of the studio.....
Incoming E.P features five tracks fusing the styles and influences of dubstep, detroit techno, leftfield hiphop and electronica. The tone is set with ”Hyper”, an extra bass heavy dubbed out slice of downbeat techno layered with crackles and dirt in healthy measures. “Incoming” buzzes and whirrs with robotic keys, broken up by crisp, whiplike drums.
Next up, “Murky” has a hiphop feel combining submerged synth and sonics with sombre organ , a cow bell led breakbeat and a cut up, clipped snare drum.
On the flip “Too Much” moves into dubstep territory with a steppers rhythm and sub-lowend The track is punctuated by stabs that sound like escaping gas and filled out with rewound vocal effects and twisted melodica like sounds.“Too Much” is a remix of a track by Dozen, an up & coming Brighton based producer.
The session is rounded off by “Kaleidoscope”, a more sedate piece driven by deep toms and soft snare intertwined with swirling, sinister keys and augmented by ethereal violin parts.click tracklist to listen1.
