Premiere: Braqueberry – Boomer (299999999)
The wonderfully-named Braqueberry has a new EP out at the end of the month on Iberian Juke, the label run by Spanish footwork dons BSN Posse. We were told it sounds like "James Blake on Diazepam" but it's actually even better than that!
The Barcelona producer and RBMA grad's first EP Wemen came out in 2013 and featured remixes from Ghosts On Tape (Fade To Mind) and MikeQ (Mad Decent). That was followed by Bass Materialist in 2014, recorded during a pilgrimage to Japan.
Chorro100's is the name of the new EP – five strung out footwork cuts mixing juke rhythms with old school analogue textures. We're premiering a track called 'Boomer (299999999)', which is probably the most old-school of the bunch. Languid synth chords provide a perfect counterpoint to the frenetic drums, before some pitch-shifted vocals take this to a weirder place entirely. Sometimes you gotta look back to look forwards.
Chorro100's is out 23rd May on Iberian Juke. Pre-order here.
