MAN 068 WILDLIFE! PASTICHE EPMay 11th, 2012
WILDLIFE! who first gained public attention for his unanimously praised productions for Jamaican bad gal Terry Lynn, and then continued making waves with global bass bubblers “Jumbie”, “Metazoa” and his dancehall-soaked “Buckup EP”, readies his first outing for Man Recordings.
The Swiss badboy teams up with Buraka Som Sistema’s J-Wow, with Toddla T and with Mr. Daniel Haaksman himself to deliver a bass fueled 4-tracker, respectfully paying hommage to a variety of genres they’re drawing inspiration and influence from.
On “DNO” WILDLIFE! & J-Wow deliver slowed down kuduroesque rhythm patterns paired with heavy sub-bass action , while the Toddla T collabo “Hear Dat” swings between grimey dancehall and post-apocalyptic soca madness. On “Paragon” WILDLIFE! and Haaksman take things up to 150 bpm, clashing a Juke/Footwork influenced percussion section with chopped-up vocal bits and genre-defying electronica weirdness. WILDLIFE! rounds things up, with dub influenced half-time smasher “Clappaz”.
