It’s an easy association to make when Nottingham’s Red Rack’em is named after a pirate (from Tintin, fools), but the Nottingham producer’s latest single really does feel like it’s bobbing around Davy Jones’ locker.
‘Chirpsin’, recently released by Ramp Recordings (and, we should add: with lovely embossed cover art that the above jpeg really doesn’t do justice to) has touches of LV in its taut synths and DVA’s Jelly Roll’ in its lop-sided bassline, but really is its own beast. You can’t hear it in the clip below, but the first half off the track is pretty hard-hitting UK Funky. Tip!, and all that. B-side ‘All Alone’ continues that moonlit aquarium feel, but reverberating everything even further into glowing plasma.
