UZ’s Quality Goods imprint harnesses the unbridled power of Champagne Drip for a genre-blurring masterpiece in the form of his Poseidon EP. Whether you knew him as the hard-as-nails drum & bass don SPL or the tropical-house-future-bass guru Champagne Drip, there’s no denying that the Los Angeles based Sam Pool is a force to be reckoned with no matter the tempo.
With this four-track EP for Quality Goods, Champagne Drip draws from an eclectic palette of musical influences that find their way to the surface in forms as varied as the hypnotic and melodic all the way through to the dark and murky. If the addictive textures of “Return Harbor” don’t get you, the glitch-driven “Poseidon” or the dark and heavy “Prometheus” will feed your soul the fuel it needs to get through the long winter nights ahead.
Our favorite off the EP has to be the old-school inspired “Ascension” that’s guaranteed to conjure up flashbacks to OG desert parties and underground warehouse for those who know. Riding the fine line between the dark and the light, ethereal atmospheres launch things into the outer reaches of the heavens before being grounded by a ruff and rugged breakbeat mashup sure to bring on the goosebumps and memories of climbing up in the bass bins to let the celestial vibes carry you away. If golden era LTJ Bukem and Good Lookin’ jungle is your thing then trust us, this is your jam.
