"Bristol-based Forsaken has been producing his uniquely musical mix of beats and bass for several years now, garnering attention from across the world, the web and blogosphere, but vinyl releases have been scarce save for a tune on Immerse Records' Substratum EP and a 12" for Peverelist's imprint Punch Drunk. Luckily, Immerse Records, celebrating its 2nd year, steps once more into the fray to deliver an imaginative twelve from Forsaken which is joyously unfettered by trends or orthodoxies, and full of his obvious love for music, melody and color. 'Hypnotised' takes a snippet of Tweet as its mantra and builds a bumpy groove around it, where busy kicks and snare drums are surrounded by snaking bass, and a subtle skank punctuates the organic blend of Rhodes and strings. Heads down, eyes shut and let the beats run riot. 'Fighting Spirit' takes a more epic approach, blending eastern zithers with a wild selection of ethnic percussion that takes a cue from London's emerging Funky scene. Mixed with thunderous bass and soothing pads, Forsaken carefully balances the mood to create a sure-fire future classic."
