gerry read’s debut lp sure was an idiosyncratic affair.

you can always rely on ramp’s younger upstart, fourth wave, to serve up the sounds of tomorrow.
so this is interesting. after debuting on dark arx last year with an ep which took in dubstep, shades of four tet/burial garage and digital dub, 19 year old gerry read is back with something wholly different again. this time on fourth wave, his ‘untitled/legs’ two tracker is coated thick with dust and comes from more of a deep house than bass standpoint. given the shades of people like omar s or falty dl in 4/4 mode throughout both tracks, it’s genuinely impressive that this is only the teenager’s (also impressive) second full release.
