Ursa Major "Whitecaps"
According to Trouble & Bass' website, this week's release from Nottingham duo Ursa Major is "one of [the label's] moodiest releases to date," but "in the best way." "Whitecaps," the a-side of Ursa Major's new record for the New York label, takes a melodic approach to UK garage with moments of jazzy chords collapsing into rattling percussion and robust low end. The track eventually sinks into a grime wobble, balancing the pleasant synth stabs and glittering tones with gritty intensity.
