Not much is known about Manchester based producer Belly, his online profile merely states 'Live artist & vocalist from the UK'. What we do know is that he releases records on his own imprint 'Belly Dance UK' and that the 3rd instalment in this series (produced by LA's Seth Cobblepot) is yet again hard hitting and dark.
Following on from the previous 2 records, featuring Timothy J Fairplay & Headman respectively, he has invited 2 more underground powerhouses, Brassica & Thinnen, to contribute their takes on his new EP simply entitled 'Water'
The original track follows the same Dark breakBeat theme that runs through the first 2 records , powerful vocals floating over layers & layers & LAYERS of synth parts that bring something new to the mix with every single listen. Thinnen's remix keeps similar themes but adds the kind of break drums that DJ Shadow would have been proud of. Then in comes Brassica who completely turns the record on its head with a completely overcharged, 90's acid remix that unfolds into a killer bass and breakbeat drop. A guest remix from Gummerson completes another re-fined record from camp Belly.
