First Listen: Walton – ‘Inside’ (Tectonic)

Fresh off his killer album Black Lotus, Walton strikes again for Tectonic.

Having built up an impressive catalogue of releases on labels like Tectonic, Hyperdub, and Madam X’s Kaizen, Walton’s first release of 2019 marks a return to Pinch’s Bristol imprint with four-track slammer, Inside.

The record sees the Manchester producer continue to flourish on a raw grime template, this time building on source material of pirate radio background talk from MC’s and snippets of bars from OG’s like Wiley. Each episode uses a familiar recipe of square waves, gunshots, and eski bleeps, but Walton’s ability to design the deadliest of riddims from such a basic foundation is what sets him apart from the rest and makes his sound so recognisable.

Guaranteed to devastate any dance, listen to ‘Inside’ below.

Walton’s Inside EP is out February 8 on Tectonic Recordings.
