The union of these two musicians for their debut album as Sepalcure produces almost exactly the effect you would imagine - the lines between dubstep, garage, funky and house are blurred into one cohesive sound fitting of the Hotflush imprint, albeit a sound that is explored to exhaustion and beyond on this release. »

the brooklyn duo of travis stewart (machinedrum) and praveen sharma (braille), follow up their brilliant ep's 'fleur' and 'love pressure' with their debut collaborative full-length album on hotflush, previously housing releases for the likes of mount kimbie and joy orbison, amongst others. bold, innovative, progressive and soulful, this album covers a wide scope of sounds and sensibilities, from house to techno, garage to post-dubstep, knowingly retrospective, yet remaining bang up-to-date. they've collectively used the broader canvas of the album format to develop their collaborative process and incorporate the diverse influences present in each artist's solo work to their sonic mixture. machinedrum's much heralded 'rooms' lp reflects the impact of the frenetic, paranoid rhythms of the modern chicago underground on the wider electronic world, while sharma's braille productions highlight his emotional sensibility and melodic sensuality. 'yuh nuh see' takes the bite out of juke's trademark staccato bass and looping vocals, washing the tension away with lush melodies and dubbed out atmospherics, while 'eternally yrs' is a burbling update of the rave-house sound, with processed vocals rubbing up against woodblock beats and a relentlessly bouncing bassline. 'the one' and first single 'pencil pimp' are destined to light up dancefloors worldwide with their variations on classic house, while tracks like 'see me feel me' and 'outside' are breezy and sophisticated. sepalcure truly epitomize the depth of bass music in 2011.
