When Spatial’s first EP made its spectral presence felt in the final washed-out days prior to Christmas 2008, bass music’s body electric experienced a new shock as a fresh mutation of the low end virus coursed through its virtual circuits, and listeners tuned in to the twin signals of ‘80207’ and ‘70810’ with such synchronous speed that the record was all but sold by the time its official early January release date rolled up. With this next double-header sure to enhance his nascent reputation as dubstep’s latest questing spirit, Spatial proves conclusively that sophisticated future garage minimalism can move a crowd just as effectively as more raucous styles. However, ‘Infra002’ is about far more than a self-consciously reductive Berlin-dub-techno-meets-UK-garage-beats cliché: the dark euphoria of original Detroit techno and the most sensuous moments in rave and jungle surge through its bloodstream. Like that of another feted inhabitant of South London’s boroughs, Spatial's music contains memories of raves past, but as leading bass scribe Joe Muggs’ observes, these are not melancholic dreams – rather they are thrilling flashbacks to peak experiences. The techno chords, steadily driving junglist syncopation and single looping note of female vocal in '90121' build momentum with the patience and restraint one might expect from a Carl Craig epic, showing how dubstep doesn't need massive builds or drops to maintain pace, while the track’s very real urgency is the polar opposite of the floaty head-nod vibe normally associated with the words “deep tune”. '90113' taps a parallel stream of breathless tension and velocity, making distinctive use of a four-to-the-floor pulse and the snapping woodblocks, rimshots and snares of UK garage, as its spaces flood progressively with a steady bass throb, moist bleeps, flickering vocal snippets and tingling techno chords. Like its earlier sibling, the ‘Infra002’ EP arrives in an elegant package, the impeccably stripped-down design of the sleeve perfectly mirroring the well-placed details of the sleek beats within, making it equally a buy-on-sight essential for collectors and box fixture for working selectors.
