This is 25yo electronic artist Bearcubs from London UK with his first single of the self-titled EP ‘Underwaterfall’. The soundscape might be described as something in between James Blake, Jai Paul and the XX, but decide for yourself. Either way, he’s on his own path and this song is quite outstanding. We’re looking forward for the whole EP to be released on March 10 via his own label ‘All Points Music’. Watch him growing folks!
Last Friday James Blake dropped an amazing and versitaile essential mix over at Pete Tong´s radio show
tracklist after the jump…
James Blakes “Wilhelm Screm” is easily one of this years best tracks and seriously, dropping it in a mix on top of a doubletime track, makes the people go “whoa”, but only the original, none of the many remixes, edits – it slows it down, but gives the dance a certain deepness thats always missing – clubnights & dances have turned into Hollywood movies, full of CGI and Special effects but no storylines, plots, unpredictable twists and emotional rides.
The Wilhelm Scream track should be definitely among the top 2011 tunes in various playlists. I didn’t know that it was a cover and that the original is such a good track. The comments on SC hint that it was James Blakes dad, but i didnt investigate. Liked it at first listen and thats all that matters.
