Blah Blah Blah are having a bit of a break through year with sets at Glade & EXIT Festival confirmed, and their labels most recent release from Blacksmif gathering support from a number of respected sources, among which Disclosure, South London Ordnance, BrEaCh, Mary Anne Hobbs, Laurent Garnier, Audiojack, XLR8R, and Beatportal can now be considered keen listeners. Their 5th release looks set to further establish the labels growing reputation with 2 tracks of deep techno inspired house from 17 yr old music enthusiast Alfie.
Born in the village of Oxted, home to a number of electronic dignitaries, Alfie has been raised on a balanced diet of Garage, Dubstep, Jungle, DNB, and Hip Hop which he has further infused with his personal love for old school Ska and Jazz. Taking key elements from each of these styles Alfies music is deftly relevant in your ear and on the floor.
Lead track Uncomfortably Numb is a high energy throbbing slice of techno laced deep house, with a reverberating bassline driving an almost industrial main hook, whilst layers of clinical percussion and pads snap and swirl throughout the mix. About Midday punches through the enveloping gloom with an inescapable rave inspired main hook which intensifies the tracks pulsating wall of manufactured sounds.
