Release Date: September 25th
East London club FOLD launch new label with pulse racing ‘Common Assault’ EP from UK Producer Gareth Wild. The 4 track EP which is due for release on a limited run vinyl is primed for heavy hitting sound systems the world over. Tested out on their own dance floor this EP marks the start of something new for FOLD, maintaining their essential presence in the electronic music world.
Emerging from the murky underground of the UK scene, Gareth Wild has already left a significant mark with his labels Ear To The Ground and LDNwht. His Journey through raves started with Jungle in the early 90s through to booking seminal Techno events across London and it is these influences that has given his productions a diverse and unique sound.
Side A of the ‘Common Assault’ EP opens with ‘Livewire’ a deep chugging jam, complete with haunting vocal chants and thunderous kick drum designed to do some damage. Coupled with the ‘Livewire – Roll Dann Remix’ that strips back the original, adding a touch more energy to the original, through precise hi hat rolls and an explosive breakdown.
On the flipside “Common Assault’ brings an acidy wobble of a bass line, a distinct trademark which will resonate in the ears of many that sits atop Gareth’s distinctive dark, low end drums and droney pads. The pacey ‘Saturn Storm’ rounds out the EP, throbbing through the speaker with a hook that keeps on going and is set to be an ever present in the record bags of hard hitting DJs across the techno spectrum.
An exclusive digital bonus track ‘Livewire – Roll Dann Remix 2’ will be available for download. Offering another take on the Side A slammer.
The EP will be distributed via Triple Vision and available in Record Stores and Via bandcamp.
