Ploy is gearing up for the release of Unit 18, an EP dedicated to his label and party Deaf Test’s spiritual home, Venue MOT Unit 18 in Bermondsey.

The Timedance and Hessle Audio affiliate’s productions are informed by the sounds you’ll hear soundtracking the Deaf Test parties, which have become a mainstay at the South London club.

Like his previous releases, the three tracks are custom-made for the club. They might be no thrills workouts but on closer listen the cuts are full of intricacies and subtle production touches that mark Ploy out as a producer with a deft approach to sound design but with results that always pack a punch.


There’s a homage to his birth year on stomping rave cut, ‘Ninety One’, UK bass and sound system culture come through as the influences on ‘Stinky’, and then there’s the low slung half-time number, ‘Unit 18’, which draws from Ploy’s love of UK drill, grime and dubstep.

In his own words: “These are three rave tracks, all influenced by sound system culture, with my take on different styles, made for various times of the early hours in our sweaty venue”.

‘Ninety One’
‘Unit 18’

Unit 18 will be released on 1st July.
