Born and raised in Croydon but now residing in the musical hotbed of Brighton, Purple Velvet Curtains is becoming a strong force in the underground house bass scene. PVC manages to intertwine sounds that pull from house, garage, hip hop and jazz. PVC is sure pushing boundaries. Starting off with the deep and dusty jack of "Get Dirty" filled with some analogue blips and blurbs galore, then be prepared for seriously wonky bassline house on the explosive "Bounce"where he's joined by Tuff Culture. Finally "Side Chick" goes for stadium sized EDM crossing over into dubstep with its Skrillex style bassline: absolutely massive!
PVC on Punks: we're playing with many shades of cool right here. Firstly the classically minded arpeggios and shuffled garage beats of "Marilyn" with added vocals charming their way over the top with a fine balance of hooky sensibility and smokiness. "Don't Stop" takes us even deeper down the house route with a quirky, jittered jack, salubrious slap bass and spliced, diced vocal details. Punks have been consistently killing it for years and this is one of their most distinctive and unique releases this year
