Premiere: Medrea – Untitled (Happa Remix)

After a busy year of 2016 marked by releases from label co-founder Jordon Saxton as Viers and Australian phenom Mall Grab – in addition to a much tasty VA 12″ featuring Baltra’s vibey healer ‘Tears Drop‘ as premiered through our channels, UK-based label Hokkaido Dance Club eventually return with the debut offering from a local talent you should hear a lot more in a near future.

Except the fact he’s operating out of Bristol via Brighton, little else is known about Medrea. Revealing the extra outgoing nature of his productions, ‘HDC005‘ makes for a fine patchwork of styles as it merges classic bassy riddims straight out the Bristolian heritage with sultry filtered house and rehashed industrial tropes, sure to keep the dancefloor packed from peak to chill time.

Streaming over at IA today, Happa‘s version of the opening cut is a straight chameleonic affair, shifting colours and moods as the groove gets weirder and the sound design progressively ruffles its feathers bar after bar. Swirling and gurgling, a perc-heavy melter all aimed at bending your mind and twisting your legs in no particular order, with enough zest to keep your brain buzzing long after the sound system’s broken off.

HDC005 is released via Hokkaido Dance Club on 27th November, pre-order a copy from Juno.
