Siu Mata debuts on Nervous Horizon this week with the ‘Amasia’ EP. Listen to ‘Rodinia’ below.
This Parisian producer’s full-pelt edits and originals have made a serious splash in the percussive club pool over the past couple of years. Alongside fellow WAJANG label boss Amor Satyr, his drum-focused fusions of styles – from juke, electro and baile funk to d&b, dubstep and “speed dembow” – are fine-tuned for maximum dancefloor impact: proper limb-swinging, lose-your-marbles material.
This aptly-placed six-track debut for East London’s Nervous Horizon label is no different. Razor sharp rhythms slice and swoop through pillars of bass; glitching whistles, uncanny howls, chirruping bird sounds and fizzing synths all swirl in syncopated synergy. All killer, no filler.
