Cat: CRITSYS001DWhen news of the Systems offshoot of Critical Music was first announced, label CEO Kasra was quoted as saying it would follow the Modulations series as the next phase of "music that stands tall on its own but also as part of the Critical family". First up in the series is Halogenix -a Critical regular both in a solo capacity and as part of the production trio Ivy Lab - and this four track release sets a high standard of quality for any subsequent contributor to follow. "Her Waves" is a quite sublime production to kick things off, and from here Halogenix shows his range with real confidence. Eveson collaboration "Baby" sounds like a 21st C UK update on Timbalaand in his prime, whilst "Too Good" is a brisk exercise in icy vocal drum and bass and "Porcupine" is as spiky as the title suggests.
- Critical keeps the fire burning from all angles as it introduces its brand new offshoot label series, Systems. Picking up from where the Modulations imprint left off, this new string of lovingly crafted releases will bring together music from across the electronic music spectrum from some of the most gifted of artists: beginning with Halogenix, one third of sublime production outfit, Ivy Lab.
