downliners sekt - hello lonely, hold the nation [dboot010] - 12″
“Hello Lonely, Hold the Nation” combines fine sonic manipulation with the ingenious song craft they have honed throughout a varied musical history. Crushing your white Ipod headphones into the dust, this work of high end hiss, shuffling textural rhythms and rumbling bass threatens to destroy even the heaviest sound systems. This new beast is their own niche of bass music, a style of working they like to call ’slower, but faster’.”
