Big Ever - Otto EP
Big Ever is the moniker of Thomas McAlister, whose previous releases as Cop Envy on Hypercolour, Templar Sound, Black Opal, Cry Baby Records and Decisions earned him recognition in the underground and beyond. A reputable sound designer and mixer in addition to composition and production, he comes to our lovely local friend's label Incienso with a release that touches on elements of dub techno, breakbeat, and glisteningly haunting sound design.
The quality in sounds and arrangements of his work were already noticeably detailed and strong, but for this the space in the mix is brought to a higher level, allowing his distinct voice the space to groove. These are the kind of tracks that can work well for a warm up set, or the other side of dawn. Big ups to Otto, and hopefully we hear more from the Big Ever moniker.
