Pessimist – Balaklava

Pessimist is Bristol electronic beat maker Kristian Jabs. According to his discography he’s released tracks on a slew of drum n bass labels since 2010. But his latest 12″ ‘Balaklava’ on the Blackest Ever Black’s imprint A14 appears to be one of his filthiest releases to date.

The tune cracks in minimalism, as the label page says ‘moody-as-f**,k’ gnawing at the ears like the post-dubstep darkness of CO/R’s ‘Bells, Walking.’
