In this series, Selections, we invite DJs, producers and label heads to dig into their digital crates and share the contents of their Bandcamp collections. While hearing new music played out by your favourite selectors has been put on hold as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, it’s never been easier, or more important, to support the artists and imprints releasing tracks, albums, EPs and comps in the midst of all the madness. In lieu of opportunities to discover new records on the dancefloor, Selections will give you the chance to nab sounds from the crates of tastemakers, and support the people behind them while you’re at it. Win-win, right?
This week, ahead of the release of his ‘All Caps’ EP on UIQ, ZULI takes us on a trip through sublime sound design, experimental hip-hop and dizzying club sounds featuring releases from Sote, Kutmah, FJAAK, Walton, Posh Isolation, Frog of Earth and more. Recorded in the months after his equipment was stolen, along with the year’s worth of new music stored on it, ‘All Caps’ is the sound of creativity erupting from frustration, and the Egyptian artist wastes no time in lighting the cathartic fuse. With six cuts spanning frenzied and experimental hardcore jungle, fracious rhythms and sizzling melodies, it marks some of ZULI’s strongest work to date.
‘All Caps’ will be released on 12th March. You can buy it here.
