WHITIES

New shit from the faultlessly up-to-date Whities label. I talked at the start of the year about hybridization across dance music and this is demonstrated brilliantly on this cross-genre romp from electronica stalwart Happa. Combining myriad elements, all with a multidimensional and holographic approach, "Clip" is like Hudson Mohawk and Lunice's TNGHT moniker taken underground into the city's sewers and drizzled in some mutant plasma. Imagine a scene out of Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles set in 3030AD and a marauding band of mutant ravers going of it to DJ Crank.

"One Three Five" explores those advanced half-time areas that Whities' fans love so much and adds some warehouse friendly M1 stabs. It's a captivating, sweeping and wholly transportive listen that again cements label and producer as market leaders of all things fresh and electronic related. If you've a penchant for the new you need this!

Matt says: As always, Whities detail the sonic topography of the emerging sonic terrain before us mere mortals have discovered it.

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.

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.
