D'TCH is carving out a sound of his own and brings it to PICKNMIX009 for his debut solo single...
Since his collaborative outing with Soul Defiance on SweetBox last year D'TCH, real name Cliff Airey, has been busy writing solo material. This has seen a release on London's Diffrent Music and gained support from London Elektricity and more. Airey has a set of signature techniques in the studio that set him apart from the rest, described by Noisia themselves as 'Squeaky, clicky... rickety rickety vibes. Ticky ticky!'
Sour Twist is an onslaught of gritty bass and low mid arps married with a spacious half time beat and trademark D'TCH vocal play. A heavy one from Airey built with its eyes set on the dancefloor.
Flip continues the theme of vocal choppage and arpeggiators presented in a more experimental nature. A coming together of Drum & Bass, Footwork and Techno we guarantee you've never heard anything quite like this before. An exciting, boundary pushing artist with plenty more up his sleeve.

This album is an enjoyable paradox, caught not just between jungle and halftime, but rather, both extremes concurrently. I'm not sure whether to slide these tunes into a hip-hop set, or break it down from a d'n'b set. This unsure feeling of speed subversion and beat delusion... I love it. DJ Home Movies
