Jesse CalossoThe Incoming
“The Incoming” is a diverse collection of tracks that shows a real maturing of Calosso’s style. As far as influences are concerned, he says “It all goes back to disco”, and speaks fondly of his father’s “attic full of vinyl.” No doubt it was this variety of early musical starting points that led him to create “The Incoming”.
The EP starts with “This is 140”, a rhythmic builder with crisp drums, filtered, cut-up sampled vocals and a funky bassline. Next up is “9AM”, an acid-tinged track with hypnotic soundscapes and spacey washes. “Scratch That” brings the tempo up with its tougher, techy sound. Finally, “Knocking” is a main room thumper with an agitated bass hook beneath a sinister top line synth motif.
While he cites the likes of DJ Sneak, Derrick Carter, Robert Armani and Robert Hood as influences, with “The Incoming” Calosso has begun to carve out his own unique sound that will ensure his work stands up against that of his idols.
