A new release from Bass Clef is always something we enjoy here at Juno, with the latest finding Ralph Cumbers adding emergent Belfast concern to his storied discography. Humming Blurs is actually the first 'Clef joint of 2015 and it finds the pun loving producer in fine fettle, channelling two distinct moods across the pair of productions. Leading the way, "Humming Blurs" pairs sprightly, swung percussion and thunderous bursts of hi hats with delightfully chiming melodies and strings and kind of sounds like vintage Four Tet pulled into the 21st Century. On the B-side "Chanson Du Ricochet" is a smeared modular delight with a rhythmic freneticism that is most infectious.
