Bath based prodigy Troy Gunnerreturns with a stunning three track EP for fledgling London based label The Crescent. Furthering his reputation as one of the UK’s most exciting and innovative young producers, Troy continues his explorations into a completely unique sound. The Headlights EP follows a critically acclaimed 12” for Manchester’s Mindset Records and a stunning remix of Gang Colours’ ‘To Repel Ghosts’ for Gilles Peterson’s Brownswood imprint.
The Headlights EP captures a snapshot of a producer confident in his aesthetic, with title track Headlights a glorious representation of Troy’s sound. Plunging basslines and airy atmospheres trail in the wake of a fractured UKG beat, with snatched vocal samples intelligently put together so as to tread the fine line that underpins Troy’s productions, the blurred distinction between euphoria and melancholy.
On the flip Thank You For Nothing emerges forcefully out of a shuffle of field recordings and warped laughter with a weighty 4x4 kick and a slab of sub bass. B2 Elixir has been on constant rotation amongst DJs in the know for a few month now. Subtle yet euphoric and pacy, it’s a perfect example of Troy’s take on club sounds.
The Headlights EP will be released on 12” and digital formats on July 23rd, distributed through SRD.
