about

Last year was an important one for Frijsfo Beats, with the release of a small but filler-free series of 12-inch and digital EPs from Sully, Ed DMX, Point B and Kuoyàh. 2010 sees the label keep moving forward with a new name for its digital roster in Sclist.
Sclist already has grass-roots respect in his adopted city of Bristol and beyond, thanks to bumping 'future garage' beats for Urban Scrumping, Mezmerize and L2S, the label run by Sub FM stalwart Whistla.

With 'Hollow' and 'Idle', he has refined his productions to new levels of effectiveness – each composition being such a confident exercise in minimalism, it would be hard to guess his debut arrived less than a year ago.

The blue-note keys and subaquatic tones on 'Hollow' seem to retrace some of Drexciya's deeper explorations, not unlike Ed DMX's experiments on FRJ003. With the beat bubbling throughout and a cloak of imperceptible but deadly bass, somehow four minutes cruise past in no time at all.

'Idle' is cut from the same cloth, but filled out with frosty dub-techno wizardry (matching that of Pangaea or Spatial) riding another thick carpet of bass. At the same time, in terms of atmosphere the track stands with classic dubstep as much as Sclist's contemporaries, recalling particularly Digital Mystikz' early lessons in restraint.

Tying up the bundle is a bonus in the form of Sclist's remix of 'Cut from the wreckage', Lewis Hunter's contribution to the first Frijsfo Beats release back in 2008. Sclist has surgically enchanced the original's mangled breakbeats and machine glitches into a final proof of his talent, and another demonstration that subtlety doesn't mean sacrificing heaviness.
