We were glued to upsammy's release on Nous'klaer Audio from first listen (the label's a firm favourite too) so were delighted to work with her on Blue 03. The Dutch producer and De School resident has provided two tracks for the EP, 'Vacate Or Annihilate' and 'Warm Puddles' – the first of which is a sort of cathartic expulsion of energy stemming from a transitional period in upsammy's life, and the second a contemplative, balmy antidote to the tension.
We were introduced to Stoke-born Leeds-based BFTT initially through the label Cong Burn, and then more recently by Minor Science who sent over a bunch of unreleased tracks. His distinct voice immediately stood out. 'Kueen' is bass-heavy, with an intricacy, preciseness and evolution to it that makes it extra special. 'Enin' is a driving but delicately hypnotic track with a melancholic leaning that grabs you by the aorta.
