Robert Logan :: Pop EP (Slowfoot)

A foray into new territory combining his knowledge of classical music with atmospherics and just a hint of a more beat oriented approach. When a new Robert Logan release appears we here at Igloo sit up and take notice. This is because his work appears to be that of someone who’s been composing for twenty […]

Robert Logan :: Flesh Decomposed (Slowfoot)

Flesh Decomposed shows a bit of softness and light among the darker tracks that dominate this album of reworked tracks that breathes new life and new depth into Logan’s oeuvre. Robert Logan’s Flesh (Slowfoot, 2015) was one of my favorite albums of 2015. Flesh brought together modern electronics, classical music, jazz and soundscapes into something evocatively […]

Robert Logan :: Extasis EP (Slowfoot)

Logan excels at conjuring up a peculiar, off-kilter atmosphere in each of Extasis‘ tracks without being too clever nor too arty or experimental which can often weigh a track down with the creator’s artistic manifesto. This EP is a good listen for dark nights and darker times. Robert Logan’s Extasis EP is like a short […]

Crewdson :: Gravity (Slowfoot)

Gravity kicks off with a couple of tracks that neatly set out the Crewdson stall: choppy drums, tight basslines, mellow synths, manipulated vocals, incidental noises and layer upon layer of plinky, metallic, high-frequency content, like he’s sampled everything including the kitchen sink. [Info page] I reviewed newcomer Crewdson, also known as Hugh Jones, when he […]

Crewdson :: Dust EP (Slowfoot)

Dust EP is a phenomenal debut, proving that Crewdson will be one to watch in the future. In short, he’s managed to create something that doesn’t really sound like anybody else, which is quite a tall order with the sheer amount of music that is being released nowadays. Slowfoot Records has never been an imprint […]

(May 2009) There’s a deal of buzz about Robert Logan. Bio-details refer to his opening for Massive Attack, co-writing the score for an Oscar-winning documentary, supposed communings with Eno, textures and beatwork for Grace Jones. Quite a profile already. And the Accurate Spit Boy EP, teaser for full-length, Inscape, certainly points to a refinement of […]
