Unknown "Tru Luv"
LA-based label Coral Records, partially responsible for the nascent and stylistically nebulous "seapunk" movement, has released a split EP (pictured above) by Curtis Vodka and Unknown as its fifth release. Germany's Unknown is behind "Tru Luv," a track that borrows heavily from old-school jungle while nodding to recent trends in the world of bass music. By combining the fast percussion of '90s drum & bass with atmospheric synths and R&B vocal samples, this hi-octave raver constructs a sort of bridge between 1994 and 2012.
