Released 29th April 2016
April sees Bristol bass don Facta drop his first release on Bloc with a storming double A-side, backed up with a remix from PAN and Berceuse Heroique affiliate Beneath.
Facta is one of the most exciting artists to come out of Bristol in the past few years, with a string of high impact releases on seminal UK imprints Idle Hands, Tempa, Wisdom Teeth and Soundman Chronicles. And this latest 12 is no different.
The EP kicks off with Alsatian, a deep technical bass workout that merges the UK template of airtight drum programming and the deepest of deep sub bass with a bump and roll that feels like classic electro… Watch out for the second drop, the subs are absolutely lethal.
Beneath closes the A-side with a stripped back take on Alsatian that reduces the original down to its bare essentials of shimmering drums and rumbling sub bass. A seriously deep remix that is strictly for the bass heads.
On the flip, Scotch Mist is cut from the same cloth as Alsatian, with expertly deployed junglist drum edits and some tasteful sample choices elevating the track into something really special. This has been on dubplate for nearly two years and we’re really proud to finally be putting it out.
