Premiere: The Crane – No Duck

Presenting their fifth release, Berlin-based record label Woodland Creatures gear up to issue the latest album from Nottingham-born producer Stephen Hedley aka The Crane.

For The Birds‘ consists of eleven tracks spanning minimal electronics, abstruse circadian rhythms, avant-garde, breakbeat, downtempo, micro-house and garage laced with a potent dose of amphetamine rich IDM.

Our pick from the album is ‘No Duck‘ – transporting listeners away from the mundanity of the urban environment this is a 126 BPM full-bodied mid dance of electronics. Heightened drum rhythms and IDM arpeggios are juxtaposed with glitched hi-hats. ‘No Duck‘ sounds like a trip back in time giving a firm nod towards the legacy of 90’s era Warp. Recommended if you’re into Brothomstates and Plaid.

‘For The Birds’ is scheduled for release on 3rd May via Woodland Creatures. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
