Q&A: SW4 ORGANISERS

With 10 stages and over 100 artists, South West Four 2015 is going to be the biggest
Fractals - Silkie - Anarchostar

The third longplayer from Silkie is as hyperreal and technicolour in its gangsta boogie characteristics as ever. Boy, this guy can really play! If ever there was an antidote to the bleaker qualities of dubstep and associated genres, this tapestry of melody, pitch and tone is it. Too many great tracks to mention, but check the euphoric ‘Limits’, the on-trend and suitably named ‘Entrapment’, the minor qualities of ‘Majik’ and the cheeky 'Love Affair'.

Conquer - Piezo - Artikal Music

Italian dubstep producer, Piezo, drops his debut release on J:Kenzo’s label, with two tracks of mutant dungeon halfstep. It’s all a little bit interstellar on both sides —‘Space Conjectures’ is more overtly glitchy and spacey, with washy synths and RJD2 orgasmic bleeps, whilst ‘Conquer’ brings in an Oriental melody line alongside the Hubble processing noises, all underpinned by a stepping drum pattern. Solid stuff.

Raw Earth Metal - General Ludd - Ten Thousand Yen

If ever there was a track which sounded like how I felt jacked on four double espressos then ‘Wigu Hill’ is it — jittery as fuck and loaded with a woodpecker-like purpose. It has an intense, weird and hypnotic quality. As does the rest of the EP from Glasgow’s Mr Ludd; track names like ‘Molcorp Mountain Pass’, ‘Garimpos’ and ‘Prisoner’s Dilema’ only hint at the madness contained within. I urge you to explore.

Overflowing (Instrumental Mix) - Michael Woods - Diffused

Do yourself a favour and steer well clear of the vocal cut of Michael Woods’ new single ‘Overflowing’, and head straight for the visceral dancefloor appeal that personifies the instrumental mix. A polished mix of electro and EDM, it’s the brute force of that bassline that cements it as a mainroom banger with enough brute power to wreck the joint. Executed with precision.
