WHITIES

Inspired by cosmology and ancient mythology, the Anunaku project is a continuation of TSVI’s debut album "Inner Worlds" and aims to explore the use of various drums from around the world combined with elements of UK underground club music.

A melting point of future funk and global dub, it's hybridization is synonymous with our fertile lands and especially London with its at once disparet and cohesive influences. Add to that TSVI's Italian heritage and you can see why the EP is a celebration of world frequencies and rhythm.

"Temples" is a hard-edged affair mixing grime-indebted synth-wind and eastern scales to an aggy breakbeat. "Bronze Age" melds metallic drums to deep chanting for a very ritualistic workout while "Forgotten Tales" concludes with a totally different vibe - a digital acid lullaby for the big sky horizons. Soaring into the sunset like an angel before commencing its midnight drum circle... Epic stuff indeed.

Sil says: M25 rave nostalgia vibes strong on this one. Whities at its best. Accessible, dancefloor friendly. This one will fly off the shelves.

Carl Gari / Abdullah Miniawy

Whities 023

Dark, coldwave soundscapes with eastern prayer rituals decorate the latest Whities releases as the Carl Gari meets Abdullah Miniawy for a collision in industrialized electronics and Arabic spiritual music...

A electro-religious hymnal made up of eight verses, it sources some of Gari's most stark, bleak and arresting soundscapes and marries it to Miniawy's unique, expressive Adhaan. Ultimately, the juxtaposition between synthetic and divine becomes blurred, allowing each, seemingly disparate element, chance at interacting with the other; a possibility only really achieved in more recent timeframes.

The results are, unsurprisingly, completely outstanding and sound like nothing else on this planet. Tension-wrought, otherworldly and containing a burning internal fire, this is a truly enveloping, all-encompassing listen and highly recommended by us all here at Picc HQ.

Sil says: Whities, the label that does not want to be categorized, releases another essential 12". This time looking directly to the east for inspiration producing 4 cuts of hypnotic / abstract downtempo bombs. Enjoy!

A three tracker by Pugilist that explores cross sections of bass, breaks and techno. There's real variation to the styles here but all have the Australian producers signature mastery of rhythmic low end.

Matt says: Whities Blue continues to mine new bass rhythms and subterrainian frequencies from the earth's crust. RIYL: Sunklo, Blackest Ever Black, Cong Burn etc.

Whities 014 is by Londoner and master digger, Jules Venturini. It’s a 3 track 12” of discordant choral euphoria with artwork designed by Alex McCullough. Obviously Reichian in its construction, "Flying Kites" should take you immediately into a world of "Music For 18 Musicians"-styled brilliance; the idea expanded on with some extra bleeps and granular effected synthesis. "Keep Me Close", whilst clearly by the same producer with the same ideas, sees the sound go more cosmic, with delicate interstellar string melodies fluttering in on a waves of solar energy. "Trace Of Smoke" completes the set with a more discordant and unsettling number; talking percussion growling fiercely through a haze of fug and static. Head turning, totally unique ambience and atmosphere throughout - recommended!

STAFF COMMENTS

Matt says: Hopefully I don't put too many trad noses out of place when I say this - but Jules Venturini is like the Steve Reich of 2017. Meticulously pieced together, "Whities014" perfectly shows off the serene, contented moods of this fantastic soundsmith.
