Review: British duo Raime are back with the first album since 2012's brilliant Quarter Turns A Living Line and their signature style of dark ambience and haunting imaginary soundtracks which incorporate jungle, dub and post-punk influences into the mix also. The album is said to be largely influenced by their side project Moin which incorporates rock and metal influences too. According to Blackest Ever Black "the DNA of dub-techno, garage/grime and post-hardcore rock music spliced into sleek and predatory new forms." Highlights include the moody subtractive rock of "Dialling In, Falling Out", the dub and post punk crossover of "Dead Heat" and the brooding mood-lighting of "Cold Cain".
Review: First making a splash several years back with their much lauded debut on Blackest Ever Black, Raime (the duo of Tom Halstead and Joe Andrews) return and inaugurate their new imprint. Developed as a blank page for the pair to to experiment on, the three experimental imaginary soundtracks featured here are described by the London based duo as 'perhaps a reflection of our bombardment based online culture.' This follows up another release this year entitled Am I Using Content Or Is Content Using Me? on Mumdance and Logos' Different Circles imprint.
