Batu - Rebuilt Ep
Batu
Rebuilt Ep
12" | 2018 | EU | Original (Xl Recordings)
9,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
Omar McCutcheon, operating under his Batu alias, has been on the frontline of Bristol’s innovative electronic music scene since 2013. In 2015 he founded his record label Timedance, a platform for showcasing his tastes utilising a close knit group of young producers and DJs.Batu’s glistening broken techno productions are pushed through a deeply UK-sounding prism, one informed by Batu being brought up on a diet of dubstep and UK dance music from a young age. Trying to tie his sound to those genres however, would be a mistake. Having been earmarked already by The Guardian as an artist to watch for 2018, Batu’s sound is very much his own.Batu’s Rebuilt EP marks his third release in just over a year. Not one for complacency, his debut release via XL Recordings shows Batu pushing his sound forward in every way possible, creating his most uniquely slippery sounding tracks to date. “I wanted to try and challenge myself a bit for this EP. Every track represents a different phase of experimentation - and also different tempos, I wanted to push my processes further than I ever have done."
Jonny L - Piper

Piper
12" | 2018 | EU | Original (Xl Recordings)
8,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance
At the tail-end of 2017, XL Recordings reissued Jonny L’s seminal D&B album ‘Sawtooth’ on vinyl for the first time. A move that further cemented the record’s game-changer status, DJ Mag hailed the record as being “still the future”, while Resident Advisor said “20 years later, Sawtooth still sounds like an outlier.”So after showcasing this 20-year-old classic, XL Recordings are today releasing a 12” containing remixes of the most iconic track from the LP, ‘Piper’. With efforts from Peverelist, Overmono, Powell and Zomby, these remixes go some way towards showing the influence Jonny L’s music still has on a wide range of contemporary electronic artists. In their own words:Peverelist I was 18 when ‘Piper’ came out. It was a time when drum and bass was evolving rapidly and tunes like ‘Piper’ were at the vanguard of that change. I remember there was red and green 10" versions of the single, the red one had the Grooverider mix on, a subtle reworking of the original. I could never figure out which I preferred. My remix is influenced by both, stark, mechanical, robotic and futuristic but rolling with a deep groove, hopefully I’ve retained that.OvermonoThere’s so much gold on the XL back catalogue, but some of it shines more brightly than the rest. ‘Piper’ is one of those tracks that has genuinely stood the test of time - an understated classic. PowellI'll never forget the snap of that snare in the club and Piper's kind of rigid, uptight sense of funk. It was a huge tune for me. I was hooked on that whole stripped, ice cold, tech-steppin' sound — neurofunk as Simon Reynolds once called it. I wanted to explore that feeling of sleek, skeletal coldness in my remix. Huge tune [the original, not mine ; )]ZombyBeen dancing to his music since hurt u so came out

Arla III, like the previous two records in the series, is a culmination of our combined influences. A representation of our memories - both real and false, of UK rave culture. These records have been informed as much by fantasy as they are real memories. The result of us piecing together our experiences of growing up and going out to raves in the Welsh countryside.

This EP is a collection of songs that were recorded during the past couple of years,”says Baba.“They all represent things I’ve been going through, just day to day stuff; travelling, djing, meeting people, being alone a lot, falling in love, parties, hang overs etc. ‘Showtime’as a title just means it’s showtime. Before every gig, every day of travel. Always somewhere. Pressure, stress, excitement. Gig-economy self-loathing and megalomani."Swedish-born 24-year-old Baba Stiltz(real name)has beensteadily releasinghis idiosyncratictake on dance music to growing fanfare. Hisis aplayful brand of electronic music that crosses boundaries and genres unlike many before.Opening the EP withjazz inflected slow-jam ‘Showtime’ and peaking with‘Maze’-the kind of summer floor-filler Babaissucha natural at crafting-his range is fully on show for the Showtime EP.
