Gerry Read – he of some of the best woozy, knock-kneed house music of the last 18 months – has a new 12″ on the way.
Last year, the young Surrey producer dropped Jummy, his excellent full-length debut for RAMP offshoot (and one of our 18 labels-to-watch in 2013) Fourth Wave. A low-key CD album, Saucepan Jams Part 1, followed in March – although, being limited to 100 copies, those fond of blinking will likely have been left behind.
Read’s latest wheeze for the label will be a new 12″, titled ‘Crave’/’Enjoy A Day Out’. Snippets of both tracks are available to stream below: ‘Crave’ sees Read in Uusitalo mode, offering submerged boogie-house, whereas ‘Enjoy A Day Out’ is closer in tone to Jummy‘s kiln-baked 4×4.
‘Crave’/’Enjoy A Day Out’ is due on June 2 on 12″ and digital. Almost a year ago to the day, FACT sat down with Read to discuss club culture’s deficiencies – head here to read. We also recently caught up with fellow Fourth Wave producer ∆ ∆.
