Premiere: Bakground – Untitled Hardcore

Providing a platform of expression to unheard talents from all around the globe, French label Raw Sounds District are set to strike back this fall with their fourth delivery, courtesy of rising North-American prospect Bakground. ‘Fantasies‘ EP is scheduled to hit the streets on 6th October.

Infusing fierce jungle breaks into dust-clogged house climates and heavy-lidded ambiences, the Indiana-based producer teleports you 20 years ago, straight back to the heyday of UK underground raves and D’n’B. Best example of that, our pick – ‘Untitled Hardcore‘ – melds the red-hot steel of cascading percs and mangled MC-vox bits with the wooly fuzz of washed-out pads.

Raw and pensive in equal measure, crawling from the menacing shadows of an eerie club night into the faded light of a cold winter morning, this one shall make some heavy damage when the minds start to get blurry but the feet still beat a feverish pulse on the dancefloor.

Fantasies EP is released via Raw Sounds District on 5th October 2017, pre-order a copy from Juno.
