A 4 track detroit/u.s. techno ep (23m 1s) — released July 27th 2018 on Heard And Felt

Since swapping his guitar for a growing collection of synths and drum machines, Melbourne producer Wu Kush has been steadily building his reputation and repertoire in all realms of techno and electronic music. Under his aliases and collaborative projects Jxtps, Juxtpose, Sjazd and JDJX he has had releases on Suara, Planet Rhythm, Momentary and more, joining alumni such as Prins Thomas, James Welsh, Harvey Sutherland, Kirk Degiorgio, Matrixxman, Booka Shade, Vince Watson, DJ Hell and Catz n Dogz.

He saves his funkiest grooves for Heard and Felt, now using the Wu Kush moniker for this side of his sound where he leans towards house, Detroit techno, electro funk and broken rhythms. Title track 'Xenomorph' drops big techno chords over layers of afro percussion and chants. 'Rolling Devastation' funks the bass synth and beats for four minutes, with echoes of a house legend coming along to jack to the groove. The fourth track is 'Third' which could be what a Martyn remix of Kraftwerk might sound like.

An extra special treat comes in the form of a killer remix from London duo Modified Man (AKA Scrimshire and Deoke), following previous remixes of Wu Kush and Juxtpose from Opolopo, Christian Vance and Heard and Felt label boss Ennio Styles. The Modified Man remix keeps the essential percussion and chords from 'Xenomorph' yet totally reshaping the groove with a broken beat and warm synths, then adding a surprise house twist late in the piece. One for fans of Dego & Kaidi, K15 and Floating Points.

5/5. Wow! This is a gem! Really like the sound of all four tracks but will definitely be playing Xenomorph and Rolling Devastation out. - Jimpster Freerange/Delusions of Grandeur
