Despite having a fairly deep discography that reaches all the way back to 2004, this is really the first time T-Polar has appeared on our radar, and he pops up in the midst of readying a new EP, Apollo, set to drop on the Saigon imprint October 24. Although "Quarter" is not a track featured on said EP, the tune does show the kind of dark, house-infused bass music the Irish producer is turning out at this point in his career. Amongst the obvious bass-music touches (skittering drums, vocal chops, and smooth chords) there's an undeniable vein of vintage rave and house to be found here, and it's these elements that keep you slightly on your heels as to where the track will turn next. After giving "Quarter" a listen, you can also peep the borderline NSFW video for the forthcoming EP's title track after the jump.
