LOW STOCK LEVEL
Dark0 debuts for Rinse following acclaim for his 2013 self-released Zero mixtape and his sparkling 2014 debut for Visionist's Lost Codes imprint. His approach to sampling, melody, texture, and composition set him apart from his instrumental grime contemporaries. Solace moves through the dreamy, thugged-out heartache of "Abrasion"; the thinly-veiled bounce and playful melodies of "Fuchsia"; the gritty kicks and razor-sharp claps of "Spiral"; and the stunning, buoyant calm of "The Past." US rap producer Suicideyear turns a dark, sorcerous hand to "Abrasion," reversing the melodies and flipping the bassline to prove just how fluid and multi-contextual Dark0's sound really is.
