Following the sucess of 'Train Wreck' and 'Tree's' on ASXXX001, Ash Walker returns with a bang for his second installment on his Vinyl only, White Label series, with 'Put it on' & 'Bush Weed''
A-side 'Put It On' is a straight up summer sizzler! A hip-hop meets rocksteady mashup, Ash Walker style. The tune carries with it the now well-established 'live' sound that Ash has been developing over the last few years, and the addition of his trademark reverbs and effects ensures that this one will get a great reaction whether being enjoyed to at home or played out to a dancefloor.
AA-side 'Bush Weed' comes like an Augustus Pablo classic updated by Ash and his band for the 21stCentury. The delicate acoustic intro sets the tone for what is sure to be a big tune this summer, before a powerful bass line enters the mix and becomes the tune's backbone. We later hear a melodica added to enhance even further to the track's expansive sense of atmosphere. The crisp guitar at the start of the track reappears towards the end to wrap up four minutes of sun-drenched and beautiful music.
Ash's unique fusion of jazz, dub and trip-hop has been getting consistent support from producers and DJs across the board, from Gilles Peterson and Don Letts at BBC Radio 6 Music, through Joe Kay at Soulection to Tim Parker, Throwing Shade and Trevor Jackson all at NTS Radio.
