After cutting his teeth for the past couple years on confidential digi-only labels, 2017 was the year of breakthrough for Cardiff-based producer Harrison BDP with no less than five solo EPs for imprints such as Music Is Love and Piff Records, amongst other things. Back with his sixth 12″ on Shall Not Fade’s sublabel Lost Palms, ‘Fade Back From Reality‘, Harry Webber gets the ball rolling in 2018 in particularly fine fashion; classic in essence but efficient to the max.
Across four tracks of equally dynamic and deep summer-flavoured house, BDP displays his skills with impressive composure. Our pick ‘Panacea‘ finds the producer exploring the further spaced-out/acid-friendly facet of his work. Fusing a bouncy mixture of fizzy 303 bass spurts, two-step drumwork and heavily transformed ASMR style voice-over on a curiously anxiogenic tip, this zero-G cosmic burner promises to lift a few spirits and feet, especially during open-air festival season.
Fade Back From Reality is released via Lost Palms on 23rd March, pre-order a copy from Bandcamp.
