Cupp Cave "Pear Pressure"
We won't mince words on this one—this warbling dance tune from Belgian producer Cupp Cave sounds a whole lot like Nottingham's resident rave archivist, the excellent Lone, and that's totally fine with us. "Pear Pressure," which is an outtake from the artist's forthcoming Dice Pool EP for hometown imprint Vlek, features all the classic sounds that his UK counterpart wields so well: thumping 909 beats, hypnotic analog basslines, and a touch of disjointed psychedelia to top it all off. Thankfully for for us, Cupp Cave uses these elements in his own creative ways, so as to make a fresh ripple in an already-familiar sonic pond. You can listen to four other examples of his musical efforts, and stream Dice Pool before it drops on June 13, here.
