Juxtpose Presents: Wu Kush

A 4 track techno ep (19m 25s) — released March 31st 2017 on Heard And Felt

Melbourne producer Juxtpose returns to Heard and Felt with more 'machine funk futurism' (Thump's description of his previous release for the label). This time, he's announcing the revivial of his childhood nickname, Wu Kush, as his outlet for more offbeat, housey and groove-oriented tracks. While putting the finishing touches to a number of new releases for Heard and Felt, he's starting out with this digital-only EP.

The sound is rough, ready and direct, full of analogue bass, bleeps and dirty drums. It references the 90s period when techno producers were taking their sounds beyond the traditional 'four to the floor' kick drum groove and finding new fans amongst breakbeat, trip hop and even adventurous jazz DJs. Equally comfortable alongside the next generation of post-dubstep offbeat techno, it's fitting that Juxtpose has found DJ support from the likes of Martyn and Roska, as well as Deep Space Helsinki, Stacey Pullen, Slam, Colin Dale, Fish Go Deep and Horse Meat Disco.

Following on from Opolopo's new jack swing/boogie remix of previous single Technometry, label boss Ennio Styles adds an 80s touch to his new remix, including house piano chords, acid lines, orchestral stabs and talkbox courtesy of Swedish producer/breakdancer Temu.

Wu Kush will continue to record as Juxtpose for his straighter techno and ambient productions for labels such as Planet Rhythm and Labrynth. He can be heard performing at Melbourne clubs and festivals like Strawberry Fields, where he has shared the bill with Cobblestone Jazz, Max Graef, Nightmares on Wax, Ame, Owen Howells, Giorgio Gigli and his Melbourne contemporaries like Sleep D, Harvey Sutherland, Ben Houghton, Dan White and Kirkis.
