One of the leading DJ’s in the ‘freestyle’ movement, famed for his bootlegs and DJ tools, is back with an original track full of EDM influences and hard, energetic beats.
"Hard-hitting and distinctly odd. Delivers the perfect amount of confusion."
Sherard Ingram is best known for his razor-sharp, high octane electro as DJ Stingray, but his latest release sees him explore other possibilities. High-paced, angular funk is audible on ‘Dendrite’, but is shrouded in atmospheric chords. 'Acetylcholine' represents a greater shift in sound — a raw, stomping techno track — while ‘eRbB4’ is reminiscent of Drexciya’s Other People Place side-project with its sublime melodies and understated pulses. Kon001 complete the release with a fine, acid-soaked take on ‘eRbB4’.
Fusion Records have been picking up and breaking through a lot of new talent over the past 12 months and this new signing Avana is going to be a serious contender on the scene this year if this E.P is anything to go by. Great original production, delivering a solid hardstyle release without being over melodic or raw, bridging this gap perfectly, which the scene needs at the moment, featuring the classic "the rhythm, the rebel" vocal sample.
