Product Type: VINYL LP
2018 release. An artist with minimal online presence, Commodo is one of an increasingly rare few who make waves through the strength of their music alone. He builds bass-focused beats with soul and substance that never perpetuate a formula, distancing himself from contemporaries with ingenious sampling and sound design influenced by his long-time affinity with the vibrancy of hip-hop. Having released on renowned labels like Mala's renowned Deep Medi Musik and Kahn & Neek's Bandulu, Commodo is indisputably a champion of the scene. Having released his debut album entitled How What Time on Black Acre in 2016, he now returns to the Bristol-based imprint to further explore the boundaries of the 140BPM template. Guitars open "Bitch & Moan" before harmonious pads, syncopated drums, and elements of jazz come into play, moving into the dubby sounds of "Leeroy" with it's ghostly synths, reverbed snare and low frequency growls. Meandering forward with a grime influenced chord sequence, "Dyrge" is a moody cut from the off featuring glitchy effects and echoing atmospherics, making way for the stripped-back and intricate "Yuliya" with it's subtle percussion and mesmerizing melodies - concluding a release exemplary of Commodo's diverse production abilities.
