3024 ready the latest Bashmore heat
Those of you still recovering from the all round excellence that was Everyone Needs A Theme Tune, Julio Bashmore’s recent EP on PMR Records, should brush themselves down and get ready for more as the Bristolian’s next appearance will be on the 3024 imprint run by Martyn.
Having already secured releases from the likes of 2562, Illum Sphere and Altered Natives 3024 have turned to Bashmore for their eleventh release, and what the label terms the first stage in their West Country takeover. Set to drop at the end of March across vinyl and digital formats, the as yet unnamed EP includes three new productions from Bashmore that further demonstrate his kaleidoscopic sonic palette.
The vinyl edition includes the heavily treated synth drag of “Batty Knee Dance”, a track filled with tightly wound 808 programming, low bass patterns and a truly melancholic vocal refrain. This is complemented by the equally intricate syncopation of “Ribble To Amazon” which has a decidedly more euphoric sensation running through it. Exclusive to the digital edition is “Grand National” a track with a liberal usage of equestrian samples that should raise as many smiles as it does eyebrows.
3024 will release the as yet unnamed EP from Julio Bashmore on March 28, 2011 and you can get a further taste of what to expect at the label website.
A) Batty Knee Dance
B) Ribble To Amazon
C) Grand National (Digital Only)
