DJ RASHAD '6613 EP' [HYPERDUB] OUT JUNE 30, 2015
Hyperdub will release the 6613 EP from DJ Rashad's vaults just over a year after his untimely passing, with all the proceeds going to his family.
Some of these songs will be familiar to anyone who saw Rashad DJ. The first are two really upbeat, rolling juke tracks; CCP2 has breezy wordless vocals chopped and diced over a rolling claps and kicks, and Cause I know you feel with Gant-Man chops a longing vocal refrain into a delirious frenzy of unexpected shapes, over pounding kicks and toms as a warm synth swells up. The vocals recede towards the end leaving just a synth glow. Ya Hot with Taso, chops and changes rhythms, dipping into half speed trap, to rolling 4/4 and into more offbeat patterns, while a hectic, bleeping melody bangs out in contrast, almost as if its tracing the pattern of dancing feet.
Do Not Fuck is paranoid 'footwork as a 'virtual panic attack' track, drawing fx's through a tunnel of accelerated bleeps, the only constant being a deadly serious guitar breakdown, a deep bass tone and the warning words of the title.
The energy of DJ Rashad will remain strong through his music.
