This is a two-track collaborative 12" by Wen & Parris, featuring dramatic rollers "Caught" and "Collide." Parris is the founder of rising label Soundman Chronicles, while the past year has found Wen exploring his own idiosyncratic, haunted visions of grime and dubstep. "Caught" is all abrupt percussive tics, flickering melodies and snippets of voice that cut through the air, while the rhythms underneath reshape themselves in real-time, switching from grime's staccato bass-blasts to sinuous, sidewinding grooves. "Collide" is even more exquisitely fluid, with its drums and distant melodies swimming though a backdrop that's somehow monolithic and yet tantalizingly fragile.
