Release Date: 14th May 2021
Presenting his first new music since 2018's 'Cloudy' on A14, we welcome Beneath to the roster with this expansive and unnerving new double EP 'On Tilt'.
His most substantial release to date, the six tracks build on his signature style of sound system workout imbued with the resonance of UK Funky, Hardcore and DMZ Dubstep. 'On Tilt' refers to a situation in poker where the player lets their luck dictate decision making, resulting in irrational strategies based purely on emotion. The panic can be felt throughout the EP with the towering 'Dark Waters' being a standout. On closer listen, dense layers of detail lurk beneath the surface making for an intense and thrilling trip.

Hodge is one of those rare producers keeping the quality on point while unleashing a near constant stream of music. Releasing no less than nine singles and EP's in two years (in parallel to his work as half of the duo Outboxx) the Young Bristolian has rapidly claimed a sonic territory of his own. Anthemic melodies, militant drums, cavernous sub bass have combined on future classics released on Berceuse Heroique, Punch Drunk and Tempa. 2015 will no doubt see Hodge increasingly dominate the ever-mutating UK underground.
His debut release on Hemlock lays four heavyweight tracks spread over two pieces of vinyl cut loud and proud by Sam at Precise. The EP spans all aspects of the Hodge signature sound: Tribal steppers, Sound system wreckers, twisted drum edits and haunting melodies.
