You&Me artists Josh Baker & Alfa serve up a shuffling house release entitled ‘Basscamp EP’ on Archie Hamilton’s Moss Co. label, dropping this November.
Manchester’s Josh Baker has been making notable appearances at Hide&Seek Festival, The Cause and Motion, not to mention a steady stream of releases on Tamango, Adult Only, Talman, and Ben Rau’s META. He’s also the founder of label and event series You&Me, of which fellow north-country rising artist and studio partner Alfa – who cut his teeth within Leeds’ thriving scene - is a core resident.
‘Basscamp’ starts with harmonizing pads, subtle bongo patterns, choppy chords and a rolling bass line, ‘Mr Bargain Hunter’ then cuts in with pumping sub-frequencies, arpeggiated keys, break-like kicks and falling space-laser stabs. ‘Marketplace Steal’ finalizes things with fluttering stereo effects, a 303-groove, haunting vocal samples and tight percussion.
DJ Support Confirmed - Samuel Thalmann, Stacey Pullen, Jean Pierre, Yaya, Pierre Codarin, Riva Starr, Rossko, Tobi Neumann, David Gtronic,
