Bristol duo Cando will release a new EP via London’s Le Chatroom label this month.
Following their 2019 debut release on Livity Sound, Cando’s six-track ‘Clutch’ EP offers four original cuts of percussive UK techno, accompanied by remixes from scene fixtures Bakongo and Kouslin.
From the sizzling syncopated club beat of ‘Clutch’ and deconstructed dub of ‘14U’ to the chirruping melodies of ‘Ambivalence’, this EP touches on numerous corners of the current UK scene, and has garnered early support from the likes of Surgeon, Peverelist and Hodge.
K-Lone has announced his debut album, 'Cape Cira', which will arrive on the Wisdom Teeth label he runs with Facta.
To date the imprint has been responsible for releases spanning synth to techno, with this the first full-length record to come from the stable.
Since launching at the end of 2017, Reprezent Radio resident High Class Filter and Definite Party Material's Ian DPM’s Scuffed Recordings label has been going from strength to strength.
A core member of London’s mighty Reprezent Radio crew, the independent station has done much for growth as a DJ and producer, as well as linking him up with like-minded individuals who share his determination.
Birmingham’s Yilan is next up on Ganesa’s Jelly Bean Farm with a ferocious five tracker, ‘Diaspora’.
Since breaking through in 2015, Agrippa has been nothing if not prolific. With a percussive, ensnaring catalog of releases under his belt already, as well as a steady stream of gigs and a recent slot on NTS with Whities’ boss Tasker, the north London-based DJ/producer – real name Will Hart – has been on a rapid trajectory that has shown no signs of slowing. The future, it seems, is bass lead.
Hart has made music from an early age, learning drums as a child (“shout out mum and dad”) and going on to play in numerous bands as a teenager. From there, an open minded head of music at school (“Shout out to Paul”) meant that Hart was able to make dubstep and drum & bass for his GCSE music pieces in 2011. Following a break from music during his A-Levels, Hart learned to DJ through a friend and subsequently became a resident at some hometown parties.
“I also have to mention a couple of key people who helped me out a lot throughout the first couple of years,” he adds. “Fred and Freddy for handling my gigs, being so supportive and nailing their new Keep Hush! ventures. Silas and Will (Silas and Snare) for putting my first tune on vinyl and for lots of advice (and tunes!). The original CJaw gang; Matt, Sam and Andy, for making me get music out in the first place, and Madam X (Shouts to Crissi) for a lot of support of myself and the Meta boys.
UK techno dude Perc, aka Ali Wells, had a momentous first clubbing experience while still at school, he tells DJ Mag. “I borrowed one of my older brother’s mate’s student cards and blagged my way into the Hacienda [in Manchester],” he recalls. “It was such an intense experience, after having only been to a few indie discos and half-hearted raves in East Anglia.”
