Cold Mission is the debut album from east London-based producer Logos: it features fellow producers Mumdance, Dusk + Blackdown, and Rabit. That Logos is a member of two emerging underground collectives -- new school grime specialists Boxed and the Keysound Recordings' 130 bpm family -- it gives you a rough sense of his whereabouts. At the first flickers of the album intro "Ex101," you begin to sense the scope and scale of Logos' mission. His modus operandi is a twin strike of connection and disconnection: he lurks in the spaces between places, both literally -- down badly-lit East End back streets -- and figuratively, swerving between established musical nodes with the mission of finding new ones. It's suspended in the tension between then, now and what's to come. In simpler terms: Logos is a junglist but this is not a jungle album. He's a grime-head but this is not a grime album. This is an excursion in the dissolutions of forms and edges; of the elongation of patterns into repetitive plateaus of intensity. The album bristles with tension: for the "cold" component, it is as if he dissolved the intros of a thousand dark-side jungle 12"s and dripped them into his analog hardware.
