Hyp 075: Thefft

Hyp 075: Thefft

Late last year you may have heard tracks from producer Thefft being dropped by some of the scene’s leaders in Oneman, Distal, Loefah and Mary Anne Hobbs, as the young Jack Robertson’s mix of techno, garage and dubstep flavours neatly tied up some of the very best new sounds coming out of the UK.

Sitting nicely alongside current ‘UK bass’ bubblers like Artifact, South London Ordnance and Visionist, Robertson’s current released material may only amount to a single release on Cut Records (a free download made available last year from here), but with a forthcoming double A-side for Fulcrum Records, plus a deeply musical take on rugged yet emotive dancefloor bombs, the future is looking bright for the now London resident.

His Hyponik mix is one of the smoothest we’ve had for a while, with seamless transitions from broken, bassy work from former Hyp mix man BD1982 and Deft, through to peak time fare from Zed Bias’ Maddslinky project and newcomers Dusky, only to end up in a different world with a classic Madvillain / Four Tet remix. Sterling stuff, and without doubt, one not to be slept on.
