Deft "Jungle Jim"
Before dropping its introductory compilation, Terrain, UK label Raised By Records shares this beat-driven cut by Croydon-based producer Deft, a bonus tune from the second part of the aformentioned release (artwork above). "Jungle Jim" boasts plenty of crisp drum sounds and eclectic percussion elements, but nonetheless remains a fairly understated and smooth production rife with vinyl crackle, deep bass rumbles, and lush synth pads. Look for an early batch of Terrain—featuring another tune by Deft, among original tracks from the likes of Fybe:One, Memotone, and more—to arrive on June 25, with the official release date coming July 23.
