Via releases for Metalheadz, Rupture London and System Music, amongst others, the ascending producer from Cardiff has impressed with his unique take on drum & bass, and more recently via grime influenced dubstep.
A thrilling hybrid of sounds and rhythms are pulled together on the ‘Deity Spear’ release as Quartz deploys angular breakbeats, gargantuan bass tones, convoluted rhythms, and panoramic sound design across four mesmerising tracks.
The opening track ‘Lilac Cobwebs’ is a reference and homage to his deceased mother, featuring a snippet of one of her last voice notes to him, and a reference to a colour he fondly remembers of her.
A spellbinding and dense release from one of the UK’s most audacious producers.
STAFF COMMENTSMatt says: R&S are at it again, scouting the talents of Cardiff's Quartz aka Elliot Garvey. The music speaks for itself - hi-tek & scrambled DnB with metallic sfx and that moody, space-age, dystopian aesthetic that pulls it straight outta the future. Mega stuff.
