The fifth compilation album in the Sofa King Sick series has arrived with this funky tech-fueled burner from Quadrant, Iris and Ed:it leading the way. It’s the perfect introduction to the entire album that features heads like DLR & Script, Zero T & Minor Forms, M-zine & Trakker and so many more.

Taking it’s name from the mysterious Nord Alley, the eponymous tune opens with the kind of crispy, funky, break-driven groove that Quadrant and Iris have become known for. Toss a little Ed:it into the mix and the collaborative results are enough to blow your mind. Once that mid-range groove comes bubbling through and the call and response from the elements start swirling in hypnotic dancefloor bliss, it’s all over.

Sofa King Sick V drops on all platforms May 10 so check the heat via the ever-essential Sofa Sound Bristol family and lock yours in by smashing the pre-save/download button here.
