Whities 024

This curious 12” single by Anunaku is actually an off-shoot of Guglielmo Barzacchini’s TSVI album Inner Worlds from 2018. ‘Whities 024’ forges British underground club music with drum sounds sourced from all around the world, and carries the same sense of global spirituality as that full-length album did.

Rupert Clervaux
After Masterpieces

Rupert Clervaux of Sian Alice Group and CVX now strikes out with a solo record of his own under his own name, titled After Masterpieces. The core of the sound is Clervaux’s poetry, but there is plenty else going on, with Anna Homler, Sian Ahern and Eben Bull contributing to the LP’s rich sonic worlds. Out on Whities.

Forest Drive West
Blue 05

Whities reignite their Blue Series with a drop from Forest Drive West. The London producer’s considered brand of techno has always felt like a good fit for Nic Tasker’s label - indeed, it’s somewhat surprising to find out that Blue 05 is Forest Drive West’s first Whities drop. ‘Other’ and ‘Time’ are both dubby, evocative rollers that show FDW as instantly at home in his new surroundings. Not dissimilar to Batu.

Nathan Micay
Whities 017

You might remember Nathan Micay from his days as Bwana, but the Berlin-based Canadian is done with all of that now. His first release under his given name is a Whities drop, which means that it’s pretty much guaranteed to be good. It would seem that Micay’s new alias has allowed him to clear the fog that often fell over the Bwana stuff. ‘First Casualty’ and ‘Beginning Ballads’ are lovely things that sound like There Is Love In You-era Four Tet.

Blue 06

Pugilist is next up on Whities’ Blue Series, a run that has already seen entries from artists like upsammy and BFTT. The trio of atmospheric rollers that Pugilist offers up on Blue 06 combine D Tiffany’s hazed house sound with some breakbeat techno stylings. There is an impressive attention to detail in the drum programming of cuts like ‘Encrypted’ and ‘Descendant’. Blue 06 is another winner from Nic Tasker’s excellent imprint.

Whities 021

After a 2018 in which they forced their way to the front of the pack, the first Whities release of the new year suggests that Nic Tasker’s label is intent on staying there. Parisian producer Bambounou serves up a trio of techno-adjacent delights for Whities 021. The skittering grooves on ‘Tour’ and ‘Temple’ evoke the best of Hessle Audio. Welcome to 2019.

E-Talking / Laksa
Blue 04

E-Talking and Laksa contribute a track each to the latest entry of Whities’ Blue series (BFTT, Lanark Artefax). ‘Telephone Rose’ may be E-Talking’s solo debut (they’re active as part of French duo Nummer) but the aesthetic is remarkably fully-formed here. The tune oscillates between cavernous big-room techno and trippy samples to hypnotic effect. On the flip Laksa brings some soundsystem heat similar to his recent drops for Ilian Tape.

Jules Venturini
Whities 014

It’s been a hot year for London’s Whities, as the Nic Tasker-ran label of leftfield grooves has platformed pure charisma from the likes of Lanark Artefax, Avalon Emerson and Bullion. Whities 014 comes from Jules Venturini, a noted record store clerk and connoisseur of precious vinyl. This 12” packs three tracks that somehow find a point between the ironic optimism of James Ferraro and the sickeningly sincere buoyancy of Four Tet. Ravey New Age type beats with a flair for the dazzling and the delirious.
