Thefft & TOYC - "Atlantic"
BD1982 - "In '95"
Eighth Ruin - "Whip"
Etch - "Predator"
four original cuts from Thefft/TOYC, BD1982, Eighth Ruin and Etch.
Since 2014 Cloy, Em-Et and Hilla's Green Village vinyl only imprint has acted as a beacon for forward
thinking house, techno and bass music genre's alike, recruiting DJ Spider, Franklin De Costa, Dakini9,
Nicuri, plus more. Now stepping up with Village Elders 002, Green Village utilise a group of versatile UK
producers including Embassy's Thefft alongside Crazylegs' TOYC, Keysound's break scientist Etch,
mysterious producer Eighth Ruin, and Tokyo based BD1982 who co-runs Diskotopia.
Thefft and TOYC's 'Atlantic' opens the package with syncopated rhythms laced with jittery organic hits,
before spiralling sonics and twisted melodies get hooked into a rattling 808 sub line. BD1982 then steps up
with 'In '95', utilising sparse rhythms alongside tightly programmed loops and synthetic ambience to create
a 16-bit atmosphere before employing rolling subs to propel the cut forward.
Eighth Ruin then ups the ante with razor sharp percussion in 'Whip', which pulsates along its waveform
thanks to a warm undulating bass, aided by IDM-tinged synth breakdowns and pitched down vocals. Etch
then delivers his new-wave break science in 'Predator', layering loops alongside a hypnotic reese in tandem
with menacing vocals and glistening atmospherics.
Village Elders 002 drops on Green Village on 25th July 2017.
