In an alley by a lake shrouded in mist, Tobias Paramore sweats over samplers and synthesisers, bringing new rhythms together for the latest tomes production. The gentle hustle of Hanoi's streets provides a sonic backdrop for raw elements woven together on the UK's shores.
It's more than a year since the genre-bending EP 'helm' and tomes' sound has evolved, keeping a raw edge and gritty tone, each element rings clear in a dynamic and layered sound scape. Off-kilter grooves and crackly cassettes interlock with deep kicks and sizzling synthesisers; chunks of UK underground filtered through Asia's heavyweight dance scene.
Drawing inspiration from hip hop, garage, drum and bass and many more styles, 'bright noise' showcases a deeper, more dance floor oriented sensibility from the globe-trotting producer, and elevates and enhances a considerable back catalogue.
