Eleven months have passed since "Peach Bits Vol 2". We're all a year older, a year wiser and, in White Peach's case, a year juicier. Repping four of their freshest faces, the whole EP is an exercise in newness: Scruloose tackles the same orchestral demons ZHA did on the label earlier this summer... And he does so in dramatic Albert Hall-flattening style. Vacant strips back the vibe to its eski spine; all rifle snares and nuclear kicks. Lington follows a similar suit with razor-sharp barbwire grime stepper "3310 Riddim" before Shudan takes us into the most unchartered corners of the dance where grime, bass and awesome sound design join forces with trippy effect.
Zha's debut opus see ghoulish theatrics, demonic orchestral movements and devilish choir chorales chopped and sliced to pieces alongside splashes of gnarly bass and machine gun claps. Big tune. It provides Fent Plates sub-label White Peach with a fifth release that enlists three remixers. Frampster delivers a glock-clocking rework of funky, hard hitting house to the calibre you'd expect from Trumpet and Badman, while Carlos' remix is tubular and a little breakbeat. It's all out rapid fire on Trends version: knock 'em dead.
