Opal Block - Warm Up EP
Opal Block is Manchester's best kept secret... but not for long.
You may remember him from the stunning intro track to Sub Radar Radio 013, "Kicking The Moon Across The Sky", essentially channeling Glasgow's maximalism scene and pushing your grey matter out through the soles of your delicate feet.
Well, he's neither a one trick pony, nor is he done squishing out your vital sound perception organs. That intensity has obviously reached a breaking point, because even though I've done my best to remain patient for his Prism debut, the tunes must flow:
Warm Up EP is here. To, well... you know...
It's actually a really good example of just how many diverse sounds Mr. Block can muster. Insane juke, bass throwdowns, it's all there, and it's all for whatever price you feel inclined to spend.
