The search for innovation in electronic music can often be an elusive one. It’s hard to create something that hasn’t been done before, which may be why an increasing number of producers seem to be retreating ever further down the path of joyless, minimalist techno. Not so the likes of Swindle, whose patter extends way beyond 4/4 boundaries. As tempting as it may be to apply that ugly prefix and call this Nu-Jazz, there’s really no need. While much of Swindle’s output has nodded to his grime and jungle influences, this track – the stand-out tune on his recent ‘Walter’s Call’ EP – is just jazz – angular, unpredictable and deftly melodic in the finest traditions of Miles Davis and Thelonious Monk. Delirious stuff.
