The West Country based producer has only one previous original production credit to his name; last year’s impressive Slugger EP for Irish imprint All City. The upcoming 12″ for Punch Drunk picks up where Slugger left off, with punchy, swung drums and pulsating bass lines the order of the day on both “D Jane” and “Channel”.
Tessela’s arrival maintains Punch Drunk’s penchant for tapping into Bristol’s rich pool of production talent, and follows a superb 2011 in which Zhou, Andy Mac, Ekoplekz, Bass Clef and Kahn all released 12″s on Tom Ford’s label.
Punch Drunk will release “D Jane/Channel” by Tessela on 12″ and digital formats on February 20, 2012. You can stream snippets of both tracks via the Soundcloud player below.
