Austin Bascom and his pseudonymn of Abacus should be known to most house heads having released some prime cuts on labels like Guidance and Prescription. For this 3 tracker on Kai Alce’s NDATL imprint he takes the percussion work of Davidson, aka iDrum, and weaves it into some deep, rolling dance floor thunder.

The A side is 15+ minutes of percussive thump, saxophone, stabs, acid lines, female vocals and sultry washes that make up “Bang This Djembe.” This is a bit of a monster, breathing with just the right amount of tension and release throughout the track making for perfect late night fare. On the flip we get the smoothed out sound of “Welcome To The Party” with analogue chords and more of that driving percussion. That’s followed by a nice dub featuring a stripped down version of the percussion work featured throughout the slab.

This is a great record for fans and DJs of many genres from the deepest deep house to the most minimal of techno. There’s something for everyone here and another gem in Abacus’ discography.
