Premiere: David J Bull – Datura


Bristol-based party Bodywork shine a light on up and coming producers with their first VA EP.

It tended to be the things you were told to stay away from that you ended up being most drawn to. They were seemingly out of reach, untouchable and forbidden – and usually for good reason. But most of the time it had the averse effect, if you weren’t allowed them you only wanted them more, regardless of the consequences.

Bodywork have been throwing parties in Bristol for almost a decade. Having put their stamp on the South Western city with a whopping 90-odd shindigs, the crew behind it are now immortalising some of the sounds and names you can hear gracing their events with a six-track various artists EP. For this inaugural release, Flexes 001, Bodywork spotlight some of their favourite up-and-coming producers, including Futureboogie producer Chez De Milo and Studio 89 resident David J Bull, the latter of whom explores his love of EBM and New Beat on our pick ‘Datura’.
