The Brighton duo’s debut EP comes courtesy of Gilles Peterson’s imprint Brownswood Recordings.
Peterson cottoned on to the talents of Max Wheeler and Victoria Port, aka Anushka, last year, championing tracks ‘I Have Love For You’ and ‘Tried & Tested’ on his BBC 6 Music show and the ‘Brownswood electr*c 3’ compilation. Fast forward to 2013 and the duo have been signed to his Brownswood Recordings with an EP set for release April 15th.
Wheeler, previous beatsmith behind hip-hop crew Dirty Diggers and more currently one half of Ye Mighty, recently delivered Hyp Mix 116 under his Max Anushka moniker. The mix was a soulful excursion through house and bass derivatives, and also provided the first outing of ‘Yes Guess’, title track for the forthcoming Anushka EP. It’s an energetic house number, with weighty bass and solid, syncopated drums crafted around Port’s vocals. Stream it below.
