Forest Drive West AKA Joe Baker joins R&S for a stunning EP of contemporary breakbeat science.

Building his reputation with a series of epochal releases including his debut LP ‘Apparitions’ on Livity Sound and a series of seismic EPs for Whites, Echochord and Delsin Baker effortlessly combines bass heavy techno classicism with a mastery of breakneck rhythmic complexity.

For his R&S debut, Baker pushes his sound further into the darker recesses of D&B, flexing drum production that hypnotises and beguiles, delivering stripped grooves shot through with dissonant pads, swollen feedback and mordant bass that manages to pull off the difficult trick of injecting a lysergic modernist feel into the junglist template.

Parallels can be drawn with Lee Gamble’s deconstructed breakbeat meditations or the dark moods of Demdike Stare - however Baker’s uniquely austere and classicist take is all his own and a perfect fit for the modern R&S canon of dark dance floor experimentation.
