Shortstuff, half of the team behind the Blunted Robots label with Brackles, will release a series of 10”s next month, as part of a project titled The Summer of Shortstuff.
In Shortstuff’s own words from an interview with the Sonic Router blog, it “captures a real progression in my stuff from about this time last year to when I finished the last track, in early 2010. I wrote the A side for my Mary Anne Hobbs guest mix, and the rest follow on chronologically from there. All the project files are dated, so I can tell you that ‘Swine Time’ was written on the 11th of October 2009, when I was laid up in bed, suffering from swine flu.
“The frenzy [of previous Shortstuff singles] is still there. It’s all still quite twitchy and uneasy, but most of the tracks that made it on there were made very quickly, out of an initial idea or vibe, without too much time being spent overcomplicating them for the sake of it.”
Ramp kindly let us agree to stream all three 10”s, plus the digital bonus track on FACT. You can listen to them below.
