This veteran of the electronic music scene is once more back in the headlines with a new release on Rejected. No stranger to the label, the Poker Flat boss is more than happy to show his face on likeminded productions. Hailing from Nienburg in Germany and now in Berlin, the producer has been an integral figure in the electronic music soundscape since 1991. A host of technology and styles have been unveiled since those early days and Steve Bug has sustained a traditional yet ever-evolving journey through this constantly changing topography. Grumble Bumble takes everything from the early days and makes it new via inventive beats and clever sound designs that lead on from their parent themes. Along with a B-side, Get Away From Me, which makes use of jazzy percussion and jumpstart chords, this release is Steve Bug’s premiere for the new year.
Resonant thumping bass drum strikes a unison beat with a repeating blip tone. New sonics enter to deliver new angles on the percussion. The drums enter as hats and shakers flow over the choppy surface. Bass begins to chew up the undercarriage with off-beat sinks into the depth. A wall of catchy rhythm opens out before us with various aspects and colours to admire. Dancing grooves spill from the beats as the one-two steps drive through picturesque arenas of synthesiser and shift. Familiar oscillator feels rise from the breaks as pulsing statues of flow stand tall in orderly lines. The six plus minutes track grows gracefully on many branches as differing elements bud then flourish on the vine of simple and effective electronic drums.
