Forest Drive West has been on a roll lately. With releases on Rupture LDN, Appian Sounds and Peverelist’s Livity Sound, the UK DJ/producer has been showcasing a versatile scope and talent with sounds veering from blistering, break-laden jungle to murky dub.
Now, he has readied four brand-new killer cuts for the ever-consistent London label, Neighbourhood. Marking the first time Forest Drive West has released a selection of pure techno tracks, this EP – Neighbourhood’s fourth – is an enticing trip into deep, gnarled territory.
‘Reshape’ – premiering below – gallops down a dark tunnel, beckoning listeners in with a dark, percussive groove and subtle, eerie electronics. It’s one to alter the mood of any dancefloor.
‘UN/Wait/Reshape/Functional’ is set for release next Friday 28th September. Pre-order it here.
