We are proud to present the Loving Touch EP from Fracture, possibly his best yet and upping the ante from the much hyped - for all the right reasons - Get Busy The EP centres around 'Loving Touch', officially using Ralphi Rosario and Xavier Gold's early Chicago classic 'You Used To Hold Me'. Ralphi loves the track and you will too. It updates the production taking the track to 160bpm, adding some footwork hats and bass but not forgetting Fracture's roots and forsaking the breaks. This drops! Loving Touch has already had loads of club play and since Rockwell sneaked it on to his BBC Radio One show we have been inundated with requests for it. The rest of the EP is by no means filler and sees Fracture at his creative best, blurring lines between 2014 rave music. Werk It was rhythmically conceived in a dream and realised with simplicity the next morning. A favourite of Machinedrum it's bubbles along with a stripped back carnival vibe, vocal instructions to "go down! / come up!" and clattering soca percussion. One for Notting Hill. Grippin' Grain is a collaboration with Sam Binga and was written at his studio in Bristol with a steaming hangover. Somehow they pulled it together and delivered a minimal 808 laden piece that never seems to let the tension drop from the first beat to the last. Slammed through an analogue desk adds enough grit and distortion to perhaps reflect the effects of the previous night? Fracture rounds off the EP with Overload and concludes a theme of breakbeats and bass stabs across the project. With block pary Hip Hop human beatbox and UK sound system samples, we find ourselves plunged thousands of feet under the atlantic ocean in a frantic international soundclash.
