Blame's On You Bruv2018
Previous support: Huey Morgan (BBC Radio 6 Music - Beat of the Week, Record Of The Week) Red Rack’Em (Rinse FM), Shy One (Balamii/NTS) Thris Tian (Worldwide FM), Dom Servini (Soho Radio/Netil Radio) “A broken chip tune jazz-funk oddessy. Brimming with influences of Dam-Funk, Herbie Hancock or Bugz In The Attic, this jittery, vibrant & playful track is a showcase for the sound of South London” Sloth Boogie “A gorgeous, celestial analogue jam. The beats are as broken as they are soulful, but the whole thing is underpinned by this serene sort of energy.” Ransom Note Set 3 from Modified Man brings another diverse bunch of tracks together with bubbling bass lines, sizzling, expansive synth sounds and heavy, broken and percussive beats. The first track for release, Blame’s On You Bruv, combines their signature bounce with broken beats via some classic UK two-step vibes, and is the first time we’ve heard a (human) voice on their records. More sub bass than ever, underpinning huge, fizzing-synth stabs and many a nod to the turn-of-the-millennium soul music that heavily influenced both Scrimshire and Dave Koor, both as musicians and DJs. Artwork once again comes from a unique piece of plasticine art created by Tim Easley. This piece itself has been gaining love and attention with massive design authorities and tech sites from Creative Review to Engadget! This and five more tracks will appear on 12” vinyl at the end of November.
