Cat: HHANDS016Review: As ever with Holding Hands, we knew we were in for a treat as soon as we opened this one up as Desert Sound Colony deliver a pulsating four track expanse, doused in top quality production techniques. We begin with the swampy yet precise bass designs of 'Two Rums Please', exploring the darker side of UKG in style. Next, the skippy drum designs and moody basslines of 'Lokus' add some mystery to proceedings before 'ODA' unleashes a wash of acidic sound design to steer us down a different avenue all together. Finally, we round this one off with a look at 'Synthetic Nixon', a super bubbly synth-heavy roller, combining euphoric melody with softened pad textures to give us one hell of a finale.
