Asusu returns to Livity Sound
The next release from Bristol’s Livity Sound triumvirate will come from the lesser spotted Asusu.
Despite being one third of the Livity Sound live show alongside Peverelist and Kowton, Asusu has only one entry in their label’s discography, the excellent Sister 12″ which was released at the tail end of 2011. Combining one track of WAX-style house on the A-side and the brooding garage-techno mechanics of “Too Much Time Has Passed” on the flip, it showed a clear progression from the dubstep-inspired productions he released through labels like Project Squared and Immerse from 2009-10.
His keenly-awaited return to the imprint – which has been a primary home for the original productions of Kowton and Peverelist in recent times – comes in the form of another two-track 12″; fitting nicely alongside the kind of raw grime and jungle-inspired productions his associates have been making lately, “Velez” sees him experiment more with weighty broken techno rhythms, all stitched together with tumbling percussion of the jungle-inspired variety, while “Rendering” is a more typical deep house track characterised by its dubby Bristolian textures. Clips of both can be streamed below.
Livity Sound will release Velez/Rendering by Asusu on June 23.
