US producer Andrew Howard aka AxH follows his lauded 2014 Tempa debut, Destroy, and releases on Elk Beats and Dubs Alive, with Numbskull. "Numbskull" kicks things off with lively melodies tumbling over driven kicks, dramatic ride pings, and fierce, roaring bass tones before "Gem Tone" melds off-kilter tones over capacious percussion perfect for big room spaces. "Hacker," a brawny collaboration with Toronto-based Gremlinz, shoots off the blocks with mangled feedback signals and sharp, effective rimshots, while dense subs tremble beneath spectral reverberated atmospherics.
