Bambounou is set to drop a new EP of heady, rhythmically intricate techno on Nic Tasker’s Whities imprint.
The French musician has made a name for himself thanks to a string of vital releases on the acclaimed label 50 Weapons. More recently, he has released on Lavibe and Don’t DJ’s Disk, showcasing a unique production style that fuses impeccable sonic detail with wildly creative rhythms that have one foot in the club and another well beyond it.
Bambounou continues mining those rhythmic possibilities on Whities 021. The first track on the EP, “Temple”, opens with brittle IDM-inspired drum programming coiled around a hypnotic synth line. Mournful pads emerge in the spaces left by the intricate rhythm, adding a tense, emotional ambiguity to the track. It’s a perfect tool to shift the tone and tempo on a dance floors.
