Commodo is back new track, ’Transit’ — a second taste of his new Black Acre EP, ‘Stakeout’.
Out October 23, ‘Stakeout’ picks up where previous EP ‘Loan Shark’ left off, tapping back into the conceptual, crime-ridden Wild West first imagined across tracks like ‘Contraband’ and ‘Hot Pursuit’; “If anyone is working on a 22nd century film noir at the moment, this would make the perfect soundtrack” wrote Bandcamp back in June.
This sentiment echoes across the ‘Stakeout’ tracklist, which again details tracks that marry precision bass-weight and deft, nimble sampling techniques with nuanced flashes of genius; Commodo is no ordinary producer. From the swirling unease and sharp crackle of the title-track to the oddball, industrial swing of ‘Transit’ and menacing, Batman-style lurch of EP closer ‘Crooked’ Law’, ‘Stakeout’ forms the fascinating concluding chapter of Commodo’s latest Black Acre odyssey.
‘Stakeout’ releases October 23!
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 via ingenious sampling and sound design influenced by his long-time affinity with hip-hop. Defining records for Deep Medi, Bandulu and Black Acre have compounded this reputation, marking him out as one of the UK underground’s true, contemporary trailblazers.
