Covering Tracks is a new regular series where we ask artists, producers and DJs to take it in turns to pick ten of their favorite recent releases—from 12-inch vinyl slabs to chunks of data. Love new music? Hate sorting through it? Let us do the heavy lifting. This week: 21-year-old British house agitator Gerry Read.
Caustic Window – Caustic Window
I haven’t heard this yet but when I do I know I’m going to be bustin nutz all over my computer.
Nochexxx – “Rinse Dreams” [Ramp]
I got introduced to Nochexxx three years ago at a local festival without realising it was him. If I’d known I would have chewed his ear off because his tunes make me laugh out loud. His Thrusters album is the best album I’ve heard for ages.
IVVVO – “Strangers”
Ivvvo blows my mind with his tunes and in real life, he is in general sick as fuck.
∆ ∆ – “Escapades” [Fourth Wave]
I found ∆ ∆ on Soundcloud a while ago and I’m well chuffed he is releasing stuff now. Everything he does leaves me itching for more.
Cupp Cave – TT IBM [Ramp]
All of Cupp Cave’s tunes make me melt. If you haven’t heard his Retina Waves EP then go and listen to it right now.
Hackman – “Change My Life” [Future Boogie]
Been a fan of Hackman since I can remember. His forthcoming album is going to make you go ‘omg’.
Houzmon – “Cause I Need You” [Houzmon]
This man removes all doubts and fears I have of the majority of house music coming out today being dull monotonous bollocks.
Hieroglyphic Being – “Acid Rain Under The Stars” [Last Known Trajectory]
All of his tunes send me to space and it’s a shame I can’t stay there.
Clark – “Superscope” [Warp]
I’ve been into Chris Clark since I was about 15 and I really like his take on techno. This tune has a wicked video too.
Hannah Diamond – “Pink and Blue” [PC Music]
This track makes me reminisce about the time in primary school where a girl had made me a massive pink Valentine’s day card and gave it to me in front of the whole class. It was covered in glitter, stickers, hearts, glue, it was mental. I then took it home where me and my mate Craig ripped it up and threw it everywhere. ~
