Sci-fi jungle from an exciting new artist.
Thugwidow - Hard Rave Aesthetic
Thugwidow is among the most overlooked and talented new producers using breakbeats. He approaches them with the precision of a Photek pupil. His inspiration is retro, but his tracks are modern, a combination you can hear on Hard Rave Aesthetic, Thugwidow's first vinyl release.
As the name suggests, there's more going on than jungle. The title track looks to electronic music's early days, its punchy rave stabs contrasting the rolling Reese basslines that hold it all up. When Thugwidow's breaks come in, they hit hard, moving fast and nimbly. But his tracks are also ensconced in an atmosphere that comes out on "A Cluster Of Angry Repeating Thoughts." This sci-fi jungle should perk the ears of jungle heads young and old.
