Dublin’s Woozy label return for their second release, but debut vinyl, as they welcome South London based producer George Whitehead, aka Coe to the label, featuring a remix from Irish superstar, Or:la.
Coe‘s productions are heavily influenced by a long-term love affair with dubstep since his teenage years, as well as a number of years DJing and promoting parties.
The EP is born out of an unfortunate accident, leaving the producer unable to walk for a number of weeks, a forced shift away from DJing led to Coe delving deeper into production, the A-side ‘Radial’ being one of the tracks he wrote during the recovery process.
The title track ‘Radial’ expertly executes hyper breakbeats, with a tribal undercurrent and a phase shifting electro backdrop.
Say (KL Tribute) flexes Coe’s wub mechanics, presenting a more stripped back, but classic two-step sound, with a tasty dub-echo’d vocal before dropping a half-step hungry wobble fest, mounting the pressure on the ‘floor to a near combustible, skanking peak.
On the flip, 403 slightens the pace for a chugging experimental electro-breaks track, with a faint dembow shell, sounding like the soundtrack to a sinister salsa dance. Or:la’s Radial rework completes the EP, conducting an orchestra of percussive pistons akin to a ravey engine room, suitable for any stomping dance floor.
