In support of next week's M.U.D release, the Out Of Focus EP, Manchester-based pair Catacombs and Knowledge are giving away a beat put together in October of last year. 'Tactics' is an exercise in restraint: building from taut kicks and snare, a lilting synth-line and choral drapes into a swollen bassline drop and carefully-arranged hi-hats which undercut the eery top lines with a dose of swing. The second drop lets the bassline take over, slowing the drums into a march before picking up the pace again with that all-important swing.
