Guava is just one of the many forms that Bradley Hutchings musical output takes. The young UK based composer and musician has already carved out a name for himself writing music for advertising and television, working with the likes of Huawei, Netflix and Virgin Media. He has also worked extensively in the live field as a session guitarist for LION and Malena Zavala.
Under his Guava alias, he focusses on creating carefully crafted bass driven dancefloor tracks. These productions have already gained him releases via Touch From A Distance and his friend and collaborator Desert Sound Colony’s imprint Holding Hands.
His latest EP, Lift, comes in hot through Control Freak, the label born from London party series Cabin Fever. The four tracks on the record find Guava refining the themes of his previous work, with a heavy focus on clean and clinical production techniques. The record is skittish, playful and constantly moving, at one moment light and airy sounding, the next diving deep and fast.
We’ve got the exclusive for the B1, ‘Can’t Catch Me’, a track that sits on the border of UKG but with a much more relaxed energy. That’s not to say though that it doesn’t move and groove. Sharp and bouncy drums are complemented by sparse, bubbly bass stabs. Listen to it below now.
