Premiere: John Heckle – Mesopotamia

A staple figure on Jamal Moss’ Mathematics and Scottish imprint Tabernacle, Liverpool based producer John Heckle has been steering a course of his own in the last five years, under his real name or as Head Front Panel – Tabernacle even allotting a full subdivision of their label to his bracing fusion of swarming electronics and frantic browbeaters.

Maintaining a strong focus on unflinching 4/4 grooves dipped in effervescent acidic pools, Heckle steps up on UAE-based label Bedouin Records for the first time with ‘Tributes To A Sun God‘, a four tracker giving prominence to straight up oddball burners and crooked club-friendly mechanics.

Our pick, the propulsive highlight ‘Mesopotamia‘ finds Heckle in terrific form, pushing the pacey, chaos-inducing formula of his previous releases to further mind-blowing extents. A maelstrom of epileptic bass moves connects the dots between a herd of elephantine kicks, red-hot hi-hats, sharp chimes and resounding cowbells that erupt below your feet in an unceasing stampede. Proper floor crusher.

Tributes To A Sun God is released via Bedouin Records in September, pre-order a vinyl copy from Juno.
