There's a new approach, a new aesthetic emerging" proclaimed Clash Magazine in a recent write-up for the last Bobby Tank cut; a sentiment we have fully signed up for at MofoHi as we explore further into the unrestricted, explosive future-funk template being pioneered by the likes of Flume, 813, Rustie and of course the aforementioned Bobby Tank.
'Collapse EP', by the Barcelona-based Alizzz, brings together a range of influences currently feeding some of the most innovative and dynamic new music being rolled out by a wave of breakthrough producers advancing the legacy techno and dubstep has left behind. The result is a seductive and outlandish 3-track EP that purposefully switches back and forth between style, tempo and colour.
Lead track, 'Collapse'-- with its outrageous drum rolls, dips and soaring highs, that alternate between uplifting and crushing-- is a case point in the post-dubstep, maximalism aesthetic. The swagger of 'B4'-- tightly cut beats, knotted bass wobbles and drum-shuffles-- continues to push the resurgent UKG, and the sexed-up machine funk of 'Arista' leans towards the slow and heavy, with a head-swirling, contemporary re-imagaining of an Rn'B classic.
Alizzz 'Collapse EP' will be available at Beatport from April 18th and elsewhere one-week later.
