New label Crystal Culture opens its accounts with with debut release of Bristol-based Stuff
The EP takes its name from manic opener ‘Gun Ho’. The mutant funky of Scratcha DVA and Bambounou comes to mind, as Stuff rolls through rhythmic progressions and diced ghetto samples, stripping back the chaos in all the right places.
Already renowned remixer and label co-founder Pedro123 takes the original into typically bright grime territory, whilst Liminal Sounds boss Elsewhere, fresh from a ‘Pulse X’ remix, provides the second version, turning out a sparse and jolting edit that sticks close to its source. Another original, entitled ‘Spider’, closes the release on a similarly frenzied tip to where it started.
