Following a stunning debut on Anthony Naples’ Proibito label, Canadian producer Local Artist delivers 3 dramatically different cuts, tied together by a decidedly dubwise approach to production.
Fresh from a nomination for ‘Label of the Year’ at Gilles Peterson’s Worldwide awards, RS004 paves the path ahead for the label.
This versatile EP shuffles between house, dub and techno, with a couple of musical nods in the direction of fellow Vancouverites Mood Hut amongst others. It does a great job straddling the line between functional / high-end DJ-friendly production and the raw / lo-fi tendencies of recent house and techno music. Discogs user admrwe rightly remarks “...this is a sorely needed deviation after 2 years of great house music that has sounded like it's recorded on a boombox underwater.”
