The folks at 92bpm turned us on to Huess, a fresh name on the UK beat-making scene likely to be getting increasing attention in the coming months. The producer draws a lot of influence from the usual suspects—J. Dilla, Prefuse 73, Boards of Canada, Madlib—but effectively filters those oft-referenced names into something a bit less familiar. Huess' debut EP arrived nearly a year ago on Inaudible Answer, but a fresh batch of tunes has just surfaced, a freely downloadable EP called Broke. The title track from that new release is a shimmering bit of funky beat work loaded with earnest synth melodies and pristinely chopped vocal samples, all working in tandem to deliver one of the most soulful electronic soundscapes we've heard this year. Stay tuned for more jams from Huess when Inaudible Answer drops its first-ever 12", a four-track EP featuring remixes from Fulgeance and Kelpe.
