DJ Guy - UNTHANK 12
Firecracker’s sibling Unthank present their first 12” release, excavating animating material from the vaults of Guy Evans’, aka DJ Guy’s, 20+ year enterprise. The Cardiff producer has generated interest from labels all over lately for his unreleased and tape archive forays into jungle, IDM, house, techno and ambient realms. UNTHANK012 selects a wide but focussed array of jams highlighting Guy’s penchant for slamming cuts and delicate, playful melodies. Opening with a dubby, bittersweet IDM curtain call, we then enter the memorable existential drip of a sunset house twirler. Faster, ravey and raucous rhythmic techno tracks with unexpected flute and acid adornments lead to jangly breaks and their slower, mercurial cousin.
