Wakaan is on something of a sick roll at the moment. The bass label has just put out the Starman EP from Champagne Drip, who has released music on various record labels since he started out in the scene.
There are four tracks to soak up within this set. The first makes a statement as ‘Sentinel,’ before the sample-filled ‘Soundboy Dead’ brings out a striking bassline and fresh melodies. The final two are ‘Kaleidoscope’ and ‘Satellite’ and both craft almost floating riffs and light dustings of vocals.
The EP’s creator says of the EP: “With Starman I wanted to create a more diverse record. Each track was started during a different time of inspiration so they all come from a different place. It was really exciting pulling these together and making something cohesive.”
