Sonic Router returns with Wattville 12″

Blog turned record label Sonic Router today announced its second release, a three track EP from 19-year-old Birmingham-based producer Wattville.

We Jostle constitutes the first vinyl emission from the fledgling imprint, with the debut EP from Torus arriving in cassette and digital formats only. It also reinforces the label’s apparent remit to focus on raw talent, with the producers responsible for the first two Sonic Router releases both in their late teens.

Wattville’s sound differs considerably from the murky electronic experimentation shown by Torus on that inaugural Sonic Router release, focusing on an approach characterised by drum-heavy, tooly, percussive grooves across three original tracks which can be previewed below, whilst the full release also features an instrumental overdub of “Clan” from NYC trio Archie Pelago.

Sonic Router Records will release We Jostle by Wattville on July 2 on vinyl and digital formats.
