EMA’s Woozy label continues apace with WZY2.5; a new compilation highlighting eight artists from Ireland and afar that embody the imprint’s obsession with low-end futurism.
Featuring two production debuts, WZY2.5 acts as an exciting snapshot of the talented global community surrounding the label and its founder. Woozy explains itself as a label dedicated to dub-heavy sounds, which is also to be heard on this third label release. Here we manoeuvre ourselves through throbbing wubs, dramatic breaks, d&b rollers and halftime gems, each track playful and fun on its own.
On our premiere pick, Amsterdam’s Jasmín takes things on a more sinister route delivering the technoid punk chug of Grumpy Cat, while holding on to her characteristic rippling rhythms.
- Ambit - Act of Goodness
- Plus One - Trial
- Huna - Lang
- Eich - Induction
- Destrata - Amphibian Barrier
- Jasmín - Grumpy Cat
- Sobolik - Deadly
- WDDS - Slow Burner
WZY2.5 will be out on August 12th 2022. Order a copy via Bandcamp.
