For a newly emergent producer, Ansome's sound is hugely confident. Inspired by a raw and urban UK techno lineage, his drums are heavyweight, his percussion fierce and his synths full blooded. All in all that makes for music that grabs your attention and drags you along for an enthralling ride. Littered with his own field recordings, it can be variously eerie or boisterous, but its uncompromising stuff of the sort anyone from Perc to Karenn would be proud.
With some vinyl releases lined-up for early 2014 and a fully live analogue show also in the works, Ansome also keeps busy by running his own label. Disco's Dead releases organic experimental bass and techno sounds from artists like Circula, Chubba and Pulsecode that nod to old school genres like jungle at the same time as facing firmly forwards. Expect big things in the months ahead from both label and producer.
