Doppa E.P.

A 4 track broken beat ep (23m 5s) — released June 3rd 2013 on Loungin Recordings

Under the steer of Jesse Rose, Graeme Sinden and Chris Belsey, Loungin' Recordings's formative years were spent driving the broken-beat sound of postmillennial Notting Hill. With pioneering producers such as Domu and Dave 'Switch' Taylor mainstays on the roster, Loungin' steadily became the label most synonymous with the jazz-derived sub-genre.

Hailing from Rotterdam, C.O.N.E is a principal member of a collective of young producers making what's commonly tagged as 'Bruk-step': a sub-genre of grime that incorporates the percussive structure and production sensibilities of broken-beat. Having delivered two typically resounding remixes for Loungin' in the last 6 months, C.O.N.E now delivers a full artist EP for the West London-based imprint.

As an avid vinyl collector of Loungin's output in the early-2000s, the 4 tracks forming the 'Doppa' EP were purpose-made to reflect the influence Solid Groove's designs had on him in the early-2000s. Already aired on RINSE FM, the EP's weighty title track is supported by 'Pressure' - a more classic cut of percussion-heavy broken house. 'Reach' is deeper inclusion that feature's the vocals of Footsteppa Records affiliate Tink, before 'Ravi' completes the package in a fractured grid of dub-techno.
