Mark your calendars as two weeks from today the highly anticipated debut EP from the California-based producer and DJ known as sumthin sumthin drops on the ever-essential Quality Goods Records. Having caught the production bug at the tender age of 12, the new-school producer comes full circle as his left-leaning bass-scapes have caught the attention of everyone from Bassnectar to Bauuer and Quix.
Flexing hard on his forthcoming Afterglow EP for Quality Goods, sumthin sumthin delivers four wide-ranging tracks that hint at the versatility and power the young producer is packing. Check the synapse-sizzle of bits like “Lotus” for an introduction to the 808-driven cuts that have helped establish sumthin sumthin as one to watch in the coming year. For more of that off-kilter crush, check the funky “Pink” before sumthin sumthin strips it all down to the basics on the minimalist shuffle of “Hollow.” Still, it’s that killer cut “Moves” that’s sure to have the heads reaching for more as sumthin sumthin links up with rising UK Grime MC Snowy for an intricately layered punch to the dome.
With the EP designed to give “listeners an awakening experience,” the exclusive mix from sumthin sumthin below elevates that sentiment to a swirling blast of energy sure to have your third eye opened in the most profound way. Check the mix and lock in your pre-order of sumthin sumthin’s Afterglow EP that drops on April 28, here.
