One of the UK underground's best-regarded producers returns with his debut album for Black Acre! Commodo experiments with a variety of underground elements, with components of hip-hop, grime, dubstep, and more in the mix. 

Continuing to add a thoughtful touch to the deeper ends of UK bass music, his album sees Commodo create deeply meditative jams that harness a raw energy and sub-bass power. Made in several different places in the UK, Turkey and Germany, 'How What Time' sees Commodo fuse the UK's raw and vibrant grime and hip-hop scene, as heard in the fierce and murky soundscapes of "Itchin" with an unmistakeable vocal from Trim. The album's standout track "Set It Straight" features Croydon's fast-rising rapper-beatmaker Rocks FOE. Commodo blends Madlib-style hip-hop beats with the fierce spirit of grime. 

When making his album he sought to "strike a balance between a sample-heavy, rap style sound palette and the energy of the 140bpm based music he's always been a part of." From the tough bass weight of his dancefloor-leaning productions to the tonally rich and immersive qualities of the album's more intricate tracks, "How What Time" maintains a resounding freshness.
