Brighton based electronic dance label Plaza release a body of music crafted throughout lockdown with one wistful eye on the club, but heart and soul in the clouds…
Hot off the back of their Spotify hit Renault Sport that has garnered close to 100,000 plays, as well as recently hyped Southpoint cut Marble Arch (featured in The New UK Garage playlist), Cortese are back with a split release on their label Plaza. The lead track Cuadrada pairs glittering synths and classic Cortese vocal cuts; if Bonobo were to make UK Garage this would be it.
Elsewhere are two sample-heavy cuts from Brighton producer and DJ Baloo, with Feelin’ Sentimental fusing John Coltrane samples with Ice Cube and Pussycat Dolls. On the flip Koopa Cape channels Mario Kart Wii vibes, using subtle Solange samples to complement the Summer drive aesthetic.
Cuadrada remixes come courtesy of fellow Brightonian Agora (also known as Movement), and Parisian hotshot Adam. The EP is available to buy and stream from all reputable outlets.
