Following the release of one of the most talked-about tracks in dance music this year – English producer and DJ Blawan shares his XL Recordings / Remote Control Records debut EP, Woke Up Right Handed. Alongside the project’s release, hailed by The Quietus as “the sound of a producer at the very top of his game right now”, Blawan shares focus track ‘Blika‘.
Last month, Blawan released ‘Under Belly’ which sparked a wave of excitement, memes, and remixes from fans. Titled one of the best tracks of 2021 by the likes of The Quietus and Mixmag, ‘Under Belly’ showcased an unexpected but dynamic shift the producer is making with the Woke Up Right Handed EP.
Moving away from the club and touring DJ life to focus on in-studio production; the EP sees Blawan put his vast knowledge from a decade-long career into perfecting wide-ranging sounds he has always wanted to explore. Flexing a deep technical ability across all the tracks on the EP, the production shines from every sound and arrangement.
Going some way towards shedding the ‘techno’ box he has so often been put in, Woke Up Right Handed makes a case for the future of music being completely fluid, further spelling the end of the ‘genre’.
