Simon Shreeve is mainly known for his work under the Monic guise and as part of the dubstep act Kryptic Minds, and Bowl is the first release under his own name. It sounds like Regis' label is the ideal platform for this music; "S/KA" throws up a dense rhythm and rumbling break beats and the title track explores this theme further, with what sounds like a herd of elephants shrieking over the kind of primal beats last heard on Regis' In A Syrian Tongue. Shreeve also displays a more reflective side here; "A Thousand & One" is built on eerie textures and microscopic beats, while "Sharda" goes back to broken beats but wraps them around melancholic, introspective melodies.
