Time Wharp has been a name to look out for for a while now.
The excellent New York lavel Astro Nautico (home to Kuhn, Howse and Obey City, amongst others) have quite-rightly been eyeing this guy up, and have just plucked him from his various self-released beat adventures (GRN EP, later.) and straight into a ‘sequel’ to his last one, dubbing it BLK EP.
What I love about this guy is that he creates blissful, minimalist, under-the-radar stuff, and builds on this ambiguous USP with each release. Giving each new record a polish each time reveals mysterious layers and greater depth, and especially with this new release – excursions from the producer’s usual comfort zone. In a Machinedrum-like turn, the Boston-via-Atlanta producer tackles house and juke rhythms like they’re new toys to add to the collection. And the result is crackling with anxiousness for more.
