Two of Wigflex’s long-standing family members, Hizatron & Bashley, collaborate on the Discharge EP for some masterful strokes in synth-driven techno that further the label’s agenda of putting Nottingham’s rising talent on firmly on the musical map.
Being one of the founding members of the label, Hizatron previously released the HZA EP in 2010 and also contributed to split EP’s alongside Geiom and Metaphi on Wigflex. Since then he’s released on Fat City and Berkane Sol and recently contributed the stellar Dejig to the Electronic Explorations compilation whilst Bashley is one of the more elusive members of the camp but more than makes up for it on the evidence on show in this release.
After a busy summer of festival dates and sun-drenched summer parties, Hotflush are back to attend to their autumn release schedule, the first of which welcomes a new collaborative project from two anonymous producers, united under the guise of NeferTT.
Both producers have become synonymous with a distinct and versatile approach to music-making. Between them, they have covered everything from hip-hop, dubstep, drone, UKG, soul, jungle, broken-beat and electronica in the body of their own previous productions.
This new collaboration sees the pair invoke a slightly more dance floor-orientated spirit, taking a marked step away from the heavily swung, nervy house/garage hybrids of their previous material, preferring to focus on irresistible groove and lush melody.
