Headed up by Insert favourite James Bangura, Percussion Functions is a new label showcasing modern reinterpretations of foundational elements from Dance Mania-era House and Techno. Their first release is a solid compilation/mission statement and hopefully a taster of a load more to follow. We debuted Color Plus’ contribution, ‘Zoda’, in our Worldwide.fm mix earlier this year and have struggled to contain our excitement for this comp’s release since.
Even on such a solid compilation, ISMAEL’s brutal ‘Disposable’ stood out to us. Underpinned by an incredible low-end and successive layers of hi-hats, harsh vox samples & synth notes; the track is equal parts mesmerising & convulsive.
‘Percussion Functions 001’ comes out May 15.
