Desert Sound Colony pulls out all the stops in his latest EP

After a small hiatus from releasing on his own label, Desert Sound Colony has returned to Holding Hands with a bang. The Bruce EP travels through the realms of electro, breaks and UK funky to deliver four guaranteed dance floor melters: it’s dangerously good.

The EP kicks off impressively with title track “The Bruce”; Wachs means business with this release. Acid-tinged, dubby and bubbling with all sorts of strangeness, there are no doubts that this is one which will remain a banger for years to come in the world of electro. If there was ever a track that could get the room moving in a heartbeat, “The Bruce” would definitely be a contender. “The Ventus” carries on where it’s predecessor left off, with small lulls exploding into all sorts of break-fuelled madness. It’s a track which has slightly more of a 90s rolling sound to it, though the specks of acid link it nicely to “The Bruce”.

For anyone looking for the love-child of electro and funky, “Mega Globule” is comfortably the best you’ll find. Choppy vocals and a broken bassline fuse together effortlessly to create one of the most innovative tracks 2020 has seen thus far; quite easily a stand out not just from this release, but in recent times. “Pompey Cruiser” rounds the release off with some lively two-step, showcasing Wachs’ knowledge and passion for a range of genres which combine to give him the distinctly fresh and unmatchable sound he is known for.

The Bruce EP can be purchased via Bandcamp.
