Ruffneck house from a London favourite.
Since debuting in 2016 with an EP from the mighty Mall Grab, Bristol label Shall Not Fade have become a rising force in UK club culture. Building a close community of artist friends in its three years of existence, the vinyl only imprint run by Kieran Williams counts Steve Murphy, DJ Octopus, Steven Be Calm, Contours, Lake Haze, and TRP as regular contributors.
Fresh off a new record from label regular Contours and the release of their double-vinyl (and first) compilation LP, 3 Years Of Service, the Bristol imprint now welcome back British house and techno producer Fold for a four-track episode of smooth house operations.
With ties to labels like Aus Music, ManMakeMusic and On Loop, Rob Glassett has become a regularly fixture of the London club circuit, spinning monthly on NTS Radio and going back to back with longtime friend Joy O on many an occasion.
His Astral Planes EP sees him cleverly tweak familiar samples to a club groove, with four highly danceable pieces of ruffneck house. Get into the shuffle of ‘Writers Anthem’ below.
Fold’s Astral Planes EP is out now.
