2016 has been a climatic year for Loadstar, having played the UK’s
biggest festival stages seeing them once again gear up for a string of club
releases.The anticipation is slowly growing with each fresh sonic piece of
artwork and after the critical acclamation which has followed their career
it’s easy to see why. Whether it’s the gritty basslines the guys are known
for, or the more melodic rollers which have peppered their sets recently,
they’ve stuck to a versatile soundscape and this output will be no different.
The next stepping stone in their colossal release schedule is ‘Channel
the Channel’ and ‘Encarta’. Both tracks platform quick-firing beats and the
quickly processing basslines apparent throughout the darker side of their
‘Change the Channel’ sets a precedent. Rolling forward on an
incredibly deceiving intro, one which focuses on a melody that resurfaces
at various segments, although you’re soon dropped into absolute chaos.
Reminiscent of their earlier productions, yet bringing together more
harmonious elements, you’re drawn into a sound which merges two ends
of the spectrum. Snatching hooks snare themselves within the mix, before
the track slowly begins to collect itself. A flicker of cinematic sample
breaks this down quickly, once more throwing you head first into a
smashing relay of breaks.
Bouncier and hitting harder with every kick drum, ‘Encarta’ follows
with clicking hi-hats and warbling bass notes which build with every layer.
A track that heavily relies on its build up, the track is diced up into
segments and with each part you’re thrown down a conundrum of
smashing percussion. A construction line of drums hit harder and harder
with every loop pattern and you’ll be unable to pull yourself out of the
track’s composition. It’s so tightly woven, Loadstar’s ingenious design
becomes very clear.
Igniting crowds worldwide, whether in Las Vegas or at
Glastonbury, Loadstar have returned with more fire than ever.
