Edinburgh-raised, now Glasgow-based beatmaker Dressin Red has split his forthcoming Head/Body tape for Astral Black into two parts: the “Head” side that represents the more introspective strains of the young talent’s craft, and the “Body” side that sees Dressin Red focused on the dancefloor. Even without glancing at its title, its easy to tell which side “Body Plan” will land on from its opening bars—a rapid-fire procession of kicks and gritty percussion open up the track, followed closely behind by some stuttered vocals, sweeping chords, and a fantastically buzzing bassline. In short, “Body Plan” is a bit of a monster, one that can be downloaded below ahead of the Head/Body EP/cassette tape’s release via Astral Black on January 26.
