- Words: Tim Gentles
Dusk's and Blackdown's Keysound imprint has a new signing in the form of London-via-Merseyside producer E.m.m.a., who is set to release her debut album with the label next month. Not included on the forthcoming Blue Gardens is "Kingfisher," a whirring slice of forward-thinking, bass-focused music which combines the colorful sides of grime and funky with the darker elements of 2-step. Blue Gardens is set to drop on July 29, and promises influences as diverse as, "Coney Island, Delia Derbyshire, Baroque tonality, [and] Microsoft's forgotten Encarta '96 Encyclopedia."
