London-based producer and DJ Tarquin returns to Gobstopper Records. "Grease" is a high-tempo example of the genre's more experimental side, using fragmented percussive samples set to a background of pitch-bent chord stabs and twisted melodic elements. Providing as much impact in the track's negative space as in its instrumentation, Tarquin's minimalist approach to production establishes its boldness and makes it a highly recognizable piece of deconstructed club music. As a counterpoint to the abstract starkness of "Grease", the release's flip side "Foxtown" utilizes ominous synths and distorted bass tones to tackle the more upfront sound of first generation grime production.
