Bambooman - Dulcet EP
Format: 12” and digital
Out: 5th May 2014
Pre-order: via Bandcamp
Following Hollowed - the Yorkshire based producer’s debut EP for Sonic Router - and his successive collaborative EP with vocalist Segilola for the King Deluxe label, Bambooman returns with a reinvigorated arsenal of productions on the Dulcet EP. Pouring a lot of ideas into the seven original tracks he tackles numerous tempos, contorting his trademark brittle percussion and his command of bounding melodies across several different forms.
“I feel like this EP is a good representation of the music I love to make - style wise,” offers Bambooman of the EP. “I definitely spent a lot of time sculpting the overall sound that I’ve been developing over the last few years. There’s a nice balance of musical feelings from the more dark minimal sound design evident in ‘Birth’ and ‘Cast‘, to the classic kick/snare hip hop flex of ‘Knox’, through to the more up-tempo garage-esque feel of tracks like ‘Dulcet’ and ‘Clasp’.”
“Similarly to Hollowed, this EP is made almost entirely out of found sounds and field recordings that I’ve made and processed; sounds I’ve synthesized myself or recordings that were made and donated by friends. There’s certainly more development and progression within the individual tracks and I feel like that’s also reflected in the EP’s sequencing.”
Premiered exclusively by Truants.
