Debut of zinging, weightless productions by New Orleans-based Mistress. Hollygroove is articulated with an American diction, yet draws heavily on UK grime. First is the shuddering echo chamber drill menace of "Lie Dormant", an aching balance between stasis and cocked tension, whilst the dank-but-dainty southern bounce of "Hollygrove" nails a sort of gaunt 3-step swagger aching for an acapella, and "Mjolnir" sounds like a Scratchy '05 riddim sent into orbit. Classic grime sound is twisted back into the twinkling 8-bar dancer, "Kanagawa Homicide" and "Behemoth" veers back to U.S./Latino club sounds. "Gatekeeper" ascends/descends into heavenly hellish, weightless baroque synth structure.
