Mosca will become the latest British producer to join the Dutch imprint in 2011, following in the footsteps of Julio Bashmore, Addison Groove, Trevino and Jon Convex – the latter both in solo mode and as one half of Instra:mental.
The four tracks that appear on The Wavey EP are an intriguing deviation from the raucous, modern re-imaginings of 90s UK Garage/2-Step that appeared on the aforementioned Numbers 12″, Done Me Wrong (check out our full review here). Burning Motor City chords combine with cavernous helpings of sub bass and a UKF sense of swing on opening track “Dom Perignon”, while “Orange Jack” features a looped hip-hop vocal atop cosy pads and a deep groove. “Jager” is the most unhinged of the lot, while digital-only offering “Wray ‘n Neph” appears to have “peak time warehouse tackle” stamped indelibly on its forehead.
No word yet on an exact release date – keep an eye on Juno Plus for more information as it comes to hand. In the meantime check out our recent feature on 3024 chief Martyn.
