Ever since handing over the reins of Hyp 158 to shadowy UK Techno maestro Pris, we’ve kept a keen eye focused on him and his label -Resin. The imprint has served as a focal point of sorts for the burgeoning wave of British and Irish producers that recently featured on the site, with each release adding momentum to what has become one of the most exciting scenes around. Debuting on Resin back in March as part of the ‘Akplenc’ EP, Divided recently stepped out on his own with the fearsome solo ‘Moment (Historical)’ four tracker. Rugged rhythms are paired with a keen ear for sound design on an EP that measures industrtial heft with chilling ambience.
Stepping up to the plate for Hyp 199, Divided lays out his influences and looks to the future with the results sounding like a continuation from his excellent recent release. Cuts from the likes of Lee Gamble and Basic Channel keep things deep and spacious, whilst he also calls on few jolts of grubby machine funk to keep feet moving, with each track an extension of his distinctive sound.
