Hyponik

Hyp 070: colo

Hyp 070: colo

Classically trained producers Colo are a new edition to the UK’s bustling electronic dance music scene, yet in a space occupied by many a ‘future garage’ / ‘UK bass’ button pusher, the young duo are setting out on their own tangent of warm, pyched-out electronica that aligns them next to big name Warp Records stars like Boards of Canada and Plaid.

With their debut ‘Midday Sun’ EP released via Amsterdam’s TAKE Records (home to recent house/garage extroverts Jack Dixon and Robin Card) on March 12, the London-based production outfit mixed up a fine recipe of chopped soul vocals, drowning 2-step rhythms and blissed-out slo-mo house distortions – as encapsulated in near perfect form on the releases title track.

The pair’s Hyponik mix spans a half hour of rattling, leagues deep bass rhythms and morphed, otherworldly sound experiments with a wealth of original tracks and edits, plus music from Arthur Russell, Rick Grant, Michael Bundt and more – next level stuff if we’re honest.
