Bristol, England-based duo Asa & Sorrow open their Knights of Ren EP with "Island Wave," which uses a sonic palette reminiscent of vintage-era Joker productions. The undulating riddim displays the duo's ability to evoke emotions of childlike hope and wonder as they explore a genre dominated by a macho aesthetic. Crafted more pointedly as dancefloor weapons, "Barbaric" is a screwface-engager and "Knights of Ren" could come straight out of Plasticman set before Richie Hawtin had him change his name to Plastician. Lemz and Hi5Ghost's remix of "Knights of Ren" turns the riddim into a proud grime banger.
