Number three of the finals sees the release debut of 'Manchester's Top Geeza' HODSON, of ex-Skin Walker fame, flexing his musical muscles under the weight of this titanic mixture of spoken word, dnb, glitch and trip hop.
Dispelling specific genre focus in favour of atmospheric and tonal meanderings, HODSON's five track effort covers aeons of ground, self-regarded in genre terms by HODSON himself as one only named 'Particular'. Using chiptune as just one of several instruments, only adding further colour to the rich patchwork of influences on show, HODSON also adds sampled vocals and his own spoken word to weigh down tracks with an emotional vibrancy not seen often within the scene. From the delicate duality of guitar tones and big beat-esque drums in 'Pink & Blue', to the thick, suffocated dnb in 'Somewhere Down In The West' or the throbbing almost acidic bass in 'Out To Pasture', Colours That Glow In The Dark is as surprising as it is diverse, and another welcome addition to the TWG roster that we are estatic to be bringing to you.
