In May this year, Frijsfo Beats introduced Buzzin10 with his debut EP Basement Mood. His microsampling of UK Garage cassette tapes caught the imagination, with The Wire magazine, Sonic Router, Boomkat and others all commenting enthusiastically. So did his way with a melody, leading to justified comparisons with Aphex Twin, Zomby and Drexciya. His very individual style found support from noteworthy DJs Sully, Dusk and Blackdown, Warlock, Robn, Kingthing, and Cardopusher to name a few.
Oli Marlow, of Sonic Router writes: “His touches aren’t subtle...Buzzin10’s quite heavy handed with his effecting but that works as a roughness and gives a scuff his tracks that purposefully bucks against the trend for pristine mixdown sheen. His music is quite raw and enviably open and even after the small amount of back and forth we’ve had setting this article up it’s obvious that all he really cares about is making music”
These three digital-only tracks continue his explorations into haunted Garage, to use his titular phrase. All are dancefloor dynamite, with 2-step breakbeats, cyber-funk basslines and spinbacks lighting the touchpaper. But as we've come to expect from Buzzin10, prepare to dive into an uncanny world of subaquatic tones, dizzying arpeggios and bittersweet memories.
