Banoffee Pies are fast approaching their eighth birthday; it’s a testament to the label’s dedication to mining for tasteful gems from all corners of the electronic music world. Over the years they’ve grown and evolved, adding several series and label arms to their arsenal that continue to showcase the wide breadth of sounds that make up the BP universe.
For the 19th instalment in their Original Series, they stick to the sonics they’ve become most known for: a cocktail of bass, dub and UKG flavours, this time coming from the mind of label debutant, Melbourne’s Pugilist. His releases have come thick and fast over the years – to date he’s clocked up EPs for the likes of Nous’klaer, Whities (now AD93), Dext and countless others, as well as self-releasing his dub-wise, bass-driven Gradient series during lockdown.
His Static EP is inspired by the fluctuating moods and feelings associated with two years spent in relative isolation, particularly with Australia the worst hit during the pandemic. As always with Pugilist’s output, across the four tracks there’s a strong nod to the UK dance floor and his passion for deep, dubby frequencies, which are also present on the cheeky digi bonus we’re premiering today – moody UKG for the late night steppers.
Static is out now on Banoffee Pies.
