Preview Proibito’s second release from Local Artist
The mysterious Local Artist delivers the second 12″ on Anthony Naples’ fledging Proibito label.
Anthony Naples’ blooming Proibito imprint was launched earlier this year with a record from Huerco S under his newly adopted Royal Crown Of Sweden alias, supplying the crunchy deep house of the R.E.G.A.L.I.E.R. EP. The second release will be a self-titled four-track effort from the unheralded act Local Artist, with Twitter evidence suggesting this search engine unfriendly producer is a member of rising Vancouver collective Mood Hut. From the sounds of the EP’s previews – which can be streamed below – it will continue the raw 4/4 sounds of the label’s first release. Both “Mr. Kiwi” and “004” offer rough drum tracks attacked by hammering cow bells and crisp hi-hats, while “Sun Raw” and “Mansion Of Hours” fathom deeper into the dubbier and moodier echelons of house music. Look out for this in ‘August’.
