Oi! Hope everyone is good, yeah?
I want to bring the spotlight back to the Tumble Audio imprint today, as Monday saw the release of their 4th installment. Killjoy (aka Core aka Ashburner) makes his return to the buttons with three original tracks, accompanied by remixes from Caski and Notion. Killjoy put Tumble Audio on the map after writing the label’s debut release back in October of ’12 with his ‘XTC’ EP, namely (in my opinion) the track ‘Tiki’. Killjoy brings an eclectic trio of music for 004, each tune embracing its own persona within the UK Funky format. The 4×4 kick and pumping bassline in the title track offer up a instant party starter, while the groovy drum breaks and crafty vocal sampling of ‘Inaudible Badness’ bring things right back to the dancehall. ‘Tangle Riddim’ is a breed of its own, sounding like some sort of brainchild of Coki’s ‘Goblin’ after a night of ketamine and Atari – a tool certain to set the energy off! Ghost Records signee Caski puts a 140 spin on ‘Memories’, with a halfstep skeleton that leaves plenty of room for sub-bass flex and vocal intricacies. Notion has outdone himself with his take on ‘Memories’, crafting an absolute slumper of a tune. Infusing grime and funky to provide a track that will convulse your body through a state of boogie like no other! It’s no surprise that such talent comes from Bristol.
Check the release below, and make sure to keep yourself locked into the Tumble Audio and Killjoy pages for future release/parties/etc.
I’ll catch you next time, heads!
