DIGI - Ivory
Digi G'Alessio, Italian bass-music producer extraordinaire, has just released Ivory, an EP infused with the sounds of Digi's (alleged) recent trip to Africa. Digi's typically off-kilter brand of production, characteristic of his usual label, Lucky Beard, is joined with layered hand drums, shakers and elephant noises. The eponymous track, 'Ivory' is especially notable for its absolutely mental half-time breakdown at the 3 minute mark, combining a unique range of sounds to constitute one of the most compelling approaches to trap music in recent memory.
