Tribal Brothers will release a new EP, ‘Formation’, via Livity Sound this month. Listen to ‘Pepper’ below.
The London-based duo of LR Groove and Razzler Man follow up their 2021 collab with DJ Polo, 'The Link Up', with four more cuts that blend UK Funky swing with different strands of South African club music. With years of experience between them, the Renk Groove Recordings founders weave elements of Afro house, amapiano and gqom into their rhythmic flow with a rowdy dexterity. Citing the likes of DJ Lag, Virgo Deep and Black Coffee as inspirations for the EP’s “high-impact drum science”, the percussive genre fusions at play feel symbiotic, and will absolutely slam on the dancefloor.
‘Pepper’ injects gqom with a hefty dose of UK soundsystem pressure; its snapping percussion patterns, whistles and vocal bursts are beefed up by a deep, sub-bass wobble. Check it out below.
'Formation' will be released on 27th May. Pre-order it here.
