FLUF 29 is Touchie Riddim EP by Mosca, a sequence of four extrapolations that invoke the spirit and sound of early 00s grime. These finely-calibrated trouser flappers walk the long line between bone-realigning bass weight and synapse-firing upper-register tones, each hit tuned to provoke a physical response. Rhythms coagulate and dissolve simultaneously, all the while brewing sweet dread that occupies the listening space. Your room, your head.

Stephen McEvoy aka tuuun's most excellent FLUF label deal primarily in digital releases, but now appear to be upping their game with physical editions.
Currently having its wicked way with my last remaining brain cell is a deadly tape from shapeshifting producer Mosca. ‘Touchie Riddim’ is a huge departure from previous DJ/dancefloor friendly releases in that it’s basically just way freakin’ weirder. I guess at its core, the EPs framework is the dislocated and busted up decaying endoskeleton of UK bass music. Mosca deploys his sound design skills and twats us up good and proper with four demented, squidgy, pulsating acid grime deviations that mutate all across the spectrum into these squelching morphing globules of rubbery sound. The first tune kinda feels like I’m trapped inside some giant blob of a pinball machine made of marshmallow, getting fired about like a ball bearing while demented monkeys fire laser blasters at me. By the time I get to the last track, the frequencies feel so tangibly wet I swear there’s a pool of radioactive ooze leaking out my speakers like something from schlock-horror The Stuff.
Bold, vibrant, dynamic sound that you’ll wanna crank right up for maximum damage. Hats off to Mosca - he’s got skills. Gorgeous looking design/package to boot.
