Blowing up from Melbourne is another buoyant release from Vulcan Venti. This time championing a debut 12″ from the Perth-based Hame DJ. Stretched out over three tracks, Dog Swamp is dripping with tranquil, dubby, low-tempo layers, fit for shaking off the rain to on a humid dancefloor.
Today’s premiere and the titular track, ‘Dog Swamp’ maintains hypnotic repetition through the application of percussive breaks and a looped animalistic groan. Propelled forward by the sheer weight of the groove, it switches up, dropping a syrupy bass line and a gentle wash of arcadian synths. Clashes and symbols provoke a tingle of excited placidity for things to come amongst the bubbling swamp waters.
Dog Swamp is out August 17th on Vulcan Venti – pre-order the vinyl here.
