“Hot on the heels of his debut vinyl release feature, on Kahn and Neek’s ‘Bandulu’ label (Bandulu 003), Bristol new wave grime don Boofy comes correct with two tracks of vinyl only, heavyweight, stop-start bangers – akin to some of the work appearing on Coyote Records, Liminal Sounds and Glacial Sound at the moment – produced with friend and newfound ‘partner in grime’, Lemzly Dale for their new label endeavour “Sector 7 Sounds.”
Title track ‘Catch a Body’ – a dark, brooding piece of highly detailed, unique sounding instrumental grime whose clip has almost reached 10,000 plays on soundcloud – has seen the duo garner support from Kahn and Neek, Asa, Hi5Ghost, Lamont , Tumble Audio and many more.
Surprised by the instant success of the title track – made after a trip to Amsterdam – and a call for more material, the pair undertook making B-Side ‘Banshee’ – an eerie companion piece to ‘Catch a Body’, drawing on a similarly detailed but more melodic and progressive sound palette combined with subdued bass wobbles and vocal snippets peppered in amongst its flurry of rolling claps and dancing hi-hats.
The release is white labelled and limited to 300 only, in an effort to bring a small slice of dubplate culture and excitement back to a music scene that has revelled in digitalism for the last decade or so and has almost forgotten what the inside of a record shop looks like.
“Sector 7 Sounds” is an outlet for the swarm of new instrumental grime activity coming out of arguably Britain’s first city of bass, Bristol. Incepted in the spring on 2013, with the aim of diversifying, expanding and building on the traditional genre conventions associated with grime, the label has already gathered strong support from within their home town, the exciting, nascent grime and funky scene in Nottingham, the scene’s founding city, London and beyond.
Be on the lookout for future projects from the duo and the label as they continue to forge their own unique new direction for urban centric, instrumental bass music throughout 2013.”
