Legend of a single here. Barbarossa might just be one of the most raw and powerful dubstep/bass tunes in years, and BB-8 has a woozy atmosphere reminiscent of recent Hyperdub releases. Don't sleep on this one!
Favorite track: Barbarossa.
Wisdom Teeth label head K-LONE revives his Wych imprint for an essential two-tracker of bleeping, melodic halfstep.
Following on from the critically acclaimed 'Old Fashioned' EP - released last year on DJ Parris's Soundman Chronicles imprint - WYCH002 sees the young Londoner exploring his formative roots in dubstep and grime - albeit from a startlingly fresh, forward-facing perspective. The tracks loosely recall the off-kilter rhythms of early James Blake and Joe, but their psychedelic melodies have as much in common with the contemporary experiments of Leif, Peverelist and Duckett.
Hotly tipped by dubstep heads Commodo, V.I.V.E.K, Boofy & Kursk. Forthcoming May 11th on 12" vinyl & digital formats, with hand-illustrated artwork by Annie Foyster.
