ALBUM PREVIEW: Untold - Black Spiral Light


With several era-defining anthems to his name, few would deny Jack Dunning his place in the history books as one of the key player’s in UK bass music’s evolution over the past five years. Crafted lasted summer, and arriving via his Hemlock imprint, comes the Londoner’s debut album. Scaling sirens and spliced ragga sermons open proceedings, but soon enough the soundsystem nostalgia descends into industrious sub n’ jack techno, with almost the entirety of second-half cloaked in pressing distortion. 

NB: Read my full review of ‘Black Spiral Light’ in the March issue of MIXMAG.
