It's tempting to dismiss G3's music as being kind of, well, throwback. The peardrop melodies and dubstep- and funky-derived rhythmic patterns of his debut single, released late last year, could easily have surfaced in 2008, when the likes of Ikonika and Zomby ruled the waves. But dance music culture is not, of course, so linear. This sound has never fully died out, and continues to throw up the odd curveball (see, for example, the sweeter morsels on E.M.M.A.'s Blue Garden). Added to which, G3, a UK producer releasing on his own Little Corner label, goes well beyond imitation. The two tracks on his debut were highly subtle, packed with rhythmic filigree and a sort of candyfloss lightness that was very appealing. Their follow-up continues in a similar vein. Sure, there are plenty of familiar touch points, but you haven't heard them deployed quite like this.
