Token mainstay Inigo Kennedy had no fewer than three collaborative tracks on Momentum, the release put together to celebrate ten years of the label's output (TOKEN 078CD/LP, 2017). The similarities between "Magma" and "Mantle" are almost as striking as their individual qualities. "Magma", with a refreshingly candid lead, is soaked in reverb and sprawling with variations that gradually increase in complexity, carried by diffused sub-harmonic pads. "Mantle" is more percussion focused. Much of its movement is dictated by a pitch-bent woodiness that meanders in stereo while the composition rumbles on and opens up to a powerful crescendo.
