Crate Digging with Andrew Wowk – August

  1. Anomie – Machine Learning [Inna Riddim]

Sydney stalwart Sofie Loizou dons her Anomie alias for some IDM-inspired, jungle-leaning breakbeat science.

  1. Croatian Armor – Same Light Reflects [Posh Isolation]

https://croatianamor-poshisolation.bandcamp.com/album/all-in-the-same-breath

An uplifting slice of leftfield electronica that is sure to make a few sunrises feel all the more special.

  1. Spettro – La Caza [Science Cult]

https://sciencecult.bandcamp.com/album/ultradian-rhythms

Dusty broken beats and stripped-down percussion snake around a gritty, speaker-busting bassline in this heady cut.

  1. Bodyjack – Measure Twice, Cut Once [FINA White]

https://finarecords.bandcamp.com/album/bodyjack-measure-twice-cut-once-ep-finawhite009

A searing acid lead, chunky drums, and ecstatic vocal stabs make this one hell of a 90s rave nostalgia trip.

  1. Balatron – Shock [Yuku]

https://yukumusic.bandcamp.com/album/i-av-llur

As if the wonky, unhinged, and crunchy half-time, hip-hop flavoured beats aren’t off kilter enough, wait for the redlined bass stabs to hit after the drop.

  1. Liam Mour – Douro (Mathew Jonson Remix) [Ode To Youth]

https://odetoyouth.bandcamp.com/track/liam-mour-douro-mathew-jonson-remix

Jonson’s distinct sound is instantly recognisable in this lush, warm, and club-ready interpretation of Liam Mour’s shoegaze-inspired original journey.

  1. Doctor Jeep – F1 [SPE:C]

https://doctorjeep.bandcamp.com/album/abyss-ep-spe-c-015-10

Fans of bass music on a quirkier, but still party rocking tip should pick up this chunk of funk immediately.

  1. HØST – Survive (Om Unit Remix) [Hooversound Recordings]

The Bristolian bass don offers up a chunky, breakbeat-driven jungle workout that pushes the boundaries of the genre.

  1. Forest Drive West – Impulse [R&S]

A murky, tribal-infused workout from one of the most unique and innovative producers in the game.

  1. Bliss Inc. – Hacking The Planet [Radiant Love]

Little-known St. Petersburg based producer Bliss Inc. takes things back to the 90s with this vibey progressive house ride full of attitude.
