Even though it's only been around for a year, Belgian imprint Silverback has managed to put out quite a few tracks from artists we like. These releases, from acts like Nguzunguzu, Jim-E Stack, and Jack Dixon, have solidified the label's reputation as a disseminator of quality bass music. Now, the label is back with Galactica, a new EP from freshly signed Philly-based producer Krueger. As a teaser, Silverback has sent along "Nou," an insane collage of global rhythms and styles. Stretching through the hard boundaries of genre, the cut is seemingly assembled from bits and pieces of tribal guarachero, dancehall, UK funky, and more. The Galactica EP is out now.
