Glasgow's Creep Woland offers up his ritualistic debut for transformational-cult-cum-record label; Astral Black.
'Close Reading' is an undiluted homage to what makes Woland's influences great, resulting in a sound soaked in the best the sheleves of a 00's Rub-a-Dub had to offer. Dripping in the richness of early dubstep, outsider House, jungle & UKG. 'Ttend2Thatt' & 'Duckin' showcase the young producers love for the trunk-rattling sounds of Memphis Slab music, whilst '0141 S.F.S.G' & '703 OVRCST' are tracks cultivated whilst hiding away in a city where it's always f*ckin raining. 'Roundz' 'Lychee Slice' & 'Sepukku' are where Creep's holding the real dub pressure though, weighty, to the point and executed to perfection.
