The cracking new LP from Dublin producer Will de Burca leads the way on the dance front this fortnight.
In release news, Dublin’s Will de Burca recently dropped his second LP, Embedded. Recorded over the past 18 months at the producer’s Dublin studio, expect to hear a fast-paced electronic intro, followed by a mix of ambient dance, trip-hop and high intensity psych-rock. Featuring vocalist Aoife Underwater among the guests, de Burca notably had one of the album’s tracks, ‘Thunder Gatti’, featured on a HBO documentary on the life of boxer Arturo Gatti. Over the past year, Will also signed with Tremolo Music, who have placed several tracks into ad campaigns for Mac Cosmetics in South Korea.
Elsewhere, Paul Hosey also recently released a new EP, Strictly Rythme, on Lisztomania Records. Support on the release comes from DJ Caspa and Stefano Esposito, and the record and was also featured on the homepage of Traxsource. Paul has been working on music over the past four years, creating tracks on Ableton Live, a Roland TR8 and a TB3. Notably, he and Andrew Hosey released their first vinyl record on Berlin label Kase Kool.
On the label front, I’d like to point the spotlight at Dublin-based Absys Records, who’ve been championing a progressive drum and bass sound since 2008. Initially founded to showcase the sounds of lesser-known producers, the past three years have seen Absys put out releases by pioneering figures such as Anile, Kontext, Nuage, Hatti Vatti, Naibu, ASC and Es.tereo, amongst others.
