Logic1000 by Logic1000 is the fourth release on SUMAC, and the first by the reclusive Sydney born, Melbourne based producer Samantha Poulter. In her unique music making process, Logic1000 conjures concepts, genres, samples, rhythms and tempos that coalesce into a tough, stark sound that will appeal to working DJs and listeners alike. Her sound is a combination of UK-centric dance rhythms, vocal samples, hyper-accurate digital synths and disembodied textures. On this EP Logic1000 has worked extensively with long-time SUMAC affiliate COP ENVY, who has added his signature mix sheen, and SUMAC founder DJ Plead who appears on Na with his signature sounds.
On this ep Logic1000 presents a series of tools, sketches and experiments that run the gamut from UK funky and deep house, to abstract percussion jams and ambient experiments. Derrière is the record’s toughest moment; a snare heavy dance track featuring the coldest of one note bass lines and distorted leads. On Precision, Logic1000 channels her Indo-Indian heritage into an extremely playable, yet minimal drum work out, while The River is Tight sees Logic1000 working in more experimental territory. Baddie Part 2 is a heavy UK funky inspired tool with an emotive, super clean portamento lead. On Na Logic1000 and DJ Plead combine their signature sounds, creating a drum heavy jam that channels dancehall snares, Darbuka grooves and icey pads. In possibly the record’s most iconic moment, Logic1000 Please Forgive Me reworks RNB icon Deborah Cox into a slice of vocal house heaven featuring a perfectly disjunctive FM bass line
