Deft "Supa Dupa"
- Words: Taylor Fife
It feels as if our inboxes here at XLR8R are overflowing with tunes from Croydon youngster Deft these days . The bass producer just released his Clotting EP earlier this month, has multiple songs coming out soon on Raised By Records' Terrain compilation, and is now announcing yet another EP, Masquerade (artwork above), which will be availabe through Rwina at the end of July. To top all of that off, we just received exclusive tune "Supa Dupa" from the producer. The quantity of his output doesn't appear to be affecting its quality, however, as "Supa Dupa" displays solid production techniques and songwriting skills. The track doesn't hit as hard as most of Deft's dubstep-influenced jams, instead taking a more atmospheric slant that features a sparkling wash of synthesizers and twinkling hi-hats. But if it's heavy low-end with a touch of wobble that really gets your rocks off, we encourage you to take a listen to the streaming preview of Deft's Masquerade EP, after the jump.
