After the earth shattering success of his debut Telo/Shiftin single in March, Gage has laid relatively low, contributing a volume to Truants’ “Functions of the Now” mix series and allowing “Telo” to percolate into ever-larger circles of influence. As far as the grime continuum goes, Gage fits somewhere between the sino abstractions of the Boxed collective and the minimal, driving techno of Mumdance and Pinch’s b2b effort for Tectonic. Gage’s productions are abrasive and dressed up in grime nomenclature, but also supremely worthy for the club in their composition and general affect. Gage’s latest effort, a remix contribution to Inkke‘s upcoming Local Action EP, balances both, applying sparse rhythm technology and bright, minor key melodic work in the same passage. Inkke’s Crystal Children EP is set for a July 21 release date and will also feature remix work from JT The Goon.
