Premiere: Bell Curve – Hi Hats Gone Wild. Forthcoming on Sweat​ ​Equity​ :.

It is a great pleasure to premiere one track from forthcoming release of NY club agitators Sweat Equity, the debut of ​​​recent​ ​New​ ​York transplant Bell​ ​Curve with ​​”Fucked Up ​If True”​,​ ​a​ ​six-track​ “​crash​ ​course​ ​in the​ ​potentials​ ​for​ ​sculptural​ ​bass​ ​music,​ ​just​ ​in​ ​time​ ​for​ ​back​ ​to​ ​school​ ​season.

It’s​ ​been​ ​a​ ​solid​ ​year​ ​for​ ​Isabel​ ​Munson’s​ ​Bell​ ​Curve​ ​project,​ ​making​ ​the​ ​jump​ ​from​ ​Boston​ ​to New​ ​York​ ​and​ ​straight​ ​into​ ​a​ ​spot​ ​on​ ​the​ ​exceptional​ ​​Sister Vol.1 compilation​ ​(curated​ ​by FXWRK​ ​and​ ​Circe),​ ​all​ ​while​ ​readying​ ​her​ ​first​ ​batch​ ​of​ ​EP​ ​tracks.​ Pairing​ ​a​ ​honed​ ​sensibility for​ ​scorched​ ​earth​ ​breaks​ ​and​ ​depth-charge​ ​low​ ​end,​ ​Munson’s​ ​works​ ​as​ ​a​ ​producer​ ​pull​ ​her own​ ​tastes​ ​as​ ​a​ ​DJ​ ​through​ ​a​ ​shapeshifting,​ ​hyper-kinetic​ ​approach.​ ​​Drawing​ ​on​ ​halftime jungle,​ ​grime,​ ​and​ ​dancehall,​ ​Munson’s​ ​work​ ​artfully​ ​dances​ ​around​ ​easy​ ​readings​ ​or​ ​genre classifications,​ ​instead​ ​pushing​ ​each​ ​track’s​ ​evolving​ ​grooves​ ​outside​ ​their​ ​comfort​ ​zone.

The​ ​tracks​ ​are​ ​a​ ​lesson​ ​in​ ​meditative,​ ​precise​ ​attention​ ​to​ ​detail,​ ​allowing​ ​long​ ​percussive patterns​ ​to​ ​weave​ ​and​ ​twist​ ​around​ ​each​ ​other,​ ​weaving​ ​a​ ​dense​ ​tapestry​ ​of​ ​syncopations​ ​and grooves​ ​that​ ​serve​ ​as​ ​a​ ​restless​ ​counterpoint​ ​to​ ​the​ ​swells​ ​and​ ​swirls​ ​of​ ​bass​ ​fleshing​ ​out​ ​each track.​ It’s​ ​a​ ​slab​ ​of​ ​patient​ ​sonic​ ​sculpting,​ ​mixing​ ​together​ ​lush​ ​synth​ ​work​ ​with​ ​razors​ ​edge rhythmic​ ​elements​ ​that​ ​take​ ​a​ ​psychedelic​ ​spin​ ​on​ ​easy​ ​genre​ ​readings​ ​or​ ​familiar​ ​signifiers. Intently​ ​focused​ ​on​ ​movement​ ​and​ ​progression,​ ​​F.U.I.T. carries​ ​some​ ​a​ ​serious​ ​cognitive payload,​ ​while​ ​never​ ​losing​ ​site​ ​of​ ​each​ ​track’s​ ​potential​ ​and​ ​purpose​ ​on​ ​the​ ​dancefloor,​ ​its mind-altering​ ​capacities​ ​stemming​ ​from​ ​an​ ​almost​ ​endless​ ​series​ ​of​ ​rhythmic​ ​permutations​ ​and changes​ ​that​ ​leave​ ​you​ ​miles​ ​from​ ​where​ ​you​ ​started.”

Isabel just started her own label/promo company
