Lucky Beard introduce the hitherto unheard sounds of Italian producer RVBRA to the world with this two track EP of bass-heavy hybrid sounds that come stripped back and lean. The acoustic tones that open "Fisting Alliance" suggest a gentle ride, but that's before the stop-start kick drums come raining down, while chopped up vocals and abstract synths add to the track's dark and sinister quality. "Crude Oil" meanwhile is a more frantic affair, combining stark, jagged bass with syncopated percussion, taking the standard bass template and adding unique texture with its strange, reverb heavy atmosphere, coating the whole thing in sepia-toned grime.
This Italian producer dropped the eyebrow-raising Fisting Alliance last summer before dropping...er, off the radar! Well, fear not because he's back and he means business. This two-tracker arrives sounding not quite like anything else: "Never Shaved" is a killer concoction of weird tribal beats (almost sounding like early Crookers in places), creepy night jungle noises and whistles and things. In short, the best voodoo party on the island. "Mungi" again features almost fidget-y beats (too early for a revival?), in fact that's pretty much all it features as it really is a totally percussive freakout, but it's all the better for it.
