Hyp 249: Neuropol

Hyp 249: Neuropol

Bursting onto our radar with his 2014 ‘Warning EP’ for Shogun Audio’s sister imprint, SGN:LTD, Bristol-based producer Neuropol followed up with the ‘Innermost’ EP, released last Friday 20 November. The inaugural release on Comsic Bridge Digital – an offshoot of Om Unit’s Cosmic Bridge imprint – ‘Innermost’ finds Neuropol nimbly connecting the dots between Bass, Hip-Hop, Footwork and field recording influenced D&B. It’s a wide-ranging affair, with the Bristolian utilising bold drum programming, uplifting piano motifs and sweeping orchestral chords, as well as the vocals of Marlene Abuah on emotional EP opener, ‘No More’.

As label boss Om Unit says:

‘Neuropol has a rare blend of skills and history that mean he can put his life experience and his technical talent into his music, with this project he’s really exploring an uplifting and emotive feel similar to modern pop which appealed to me instantly, given that he’s taken that pop feel and melded it with some of the vibe we have pushed with the label already in a very tasteful way.’

With a turntablist past, Neuropol has gained a reputation as a dynamic selector, having previously blessed Ninja Tune’s Solid Steel Sessions. On Hyp 249, he offers up ‘Post Native Mix Vol.4’ – a hard-hitting, hour long journey that mixes smatterings of classic Hip-Hop and left field Pop with a strong assortment of weighty club numbers. Artists as varied as Dub Phizix, Ludacris, Bjork and Neuropol himself all feature; get into the mix below…
