Mancunian disco expert Krystal Klear prepares ‘Addiction’ EP on Rinse, forthcoming on March 18.
With uplifting synths, swinging rhythmic bounce and an emotive vocal performance from Jenna Gibbons aka ‘Jenna G’, ‘Addiction’ will certainly not go unnoticed. It smacks of the disco that defines his radio show, and comes with an accordingly colourful flipside, ‘No Sweat’.
This release, aswell as XXXY‘s recent drop and the addition of Bicep, Optimo and Daniel Avery to the roster, is futher evidence of the label and station’s diversity, mapping a careful transition away from their foundations within garage, grime and dubstep.
The pair are due to begin a set of live performances, launching this Friday at Thekla, Bristol. For the full list of tour dates, see below.
