The Brain Named Itself by Third Son - Accidental Jnr [ACJ133D] FLAC download included with physical items

The Brain Named Itself

A 4 track house ep (25m 13s) — released April 3rd 2020 on Accidental Jnr

Matthew Herbert's Accidental Jnr imprint invites rising London based producer/DJ Third Son into the fold. The Polymath label boss has been causing quite a stir in the house music scene with releases for 17 Steps, Skint and TERR's Clash Lion as well as clocking up remix credits for among others Marc Romboy and Maya Jane Coles (under her Nocturnal Sunshine alias).

'Bag O' Bones' opens up proceedings with its clattering toybox percussion, throbbing kick drums and dissonant lead stabs. The track has a brittle, dry quality to it, but Third Son's ear for the dance floor is clear as the arrangement smoothly rolls along at a firm pace. More of the same is served up in 'Chime Salad', with layers upon layers of wonky, shifting percussion, building up into a tower of sound that feels as though it should come crumbling down, but somehow always stands firm.

The B1 'Phase Of Going Through Life' brings the energy back down to earth with its slightly sparser arrangement and clips of bird songs, while still maintaining the off kilter pace of the previous pieces. The record then closes with the feel-good club work out, 'The Brain Named Itself', where we find Third Son administering a last-minute, sharp injection of groove. The dissonant synths that opened the record are replaced by brilliant, euphoric chord sweeps and pounding drums that are sure to move any dancefloor.
