SIDESHOW
Scary Biscuits EP

[Aus Music, www.ausmusic.co.uk]

Sideshow makes a return in the form of a 20 minute extended EP. Going by various monikers - Fin - Sideshow is actually one Fin Greenall. House-drenched atmospherics with smooth layered beats that are processed with additions of synths and keyboards and everybody's doing just fine, thank you. First track, "Polar Bear Dub (Icy Loop)" features heavy experimentation with edits and clicks'n'pops. The sound itself resembles a muffled CD player as it's skipping and going haywire, while mid-way, some solid, down-tempo beats join the mix. Title track is a concoction of steady beats, deep house grooves and all round goodness. The highlight of the show seems to be "You've Changed (dub)", which features heavily sampled hi-hat percussion solo along with a deep bass groove dub. After a high point of this proportion, the minimalism of John Tejada's low-riding and high-grooving remix of "Scary Biscuits" is somehow a disappointment. We've got some rich and intense stuff coming out of left field from the Sideshow. Dope as ever!
