Surkin Readies New EP
- Words: Brad Stabler
Parisian beatmaker Surkin is a veteran with a litany of releases under his belt, both for former home Institutes and his own label Marble, co-founded alongside Bobmo and Para One. Still, it's been more than a year and a half since his last original offering, but that's about to change with the impending release of Advanced Entertainment System. The EP features six tracks with a grab bag of influences culled from French house, golden-age hip-hop, and 32-bit videogame music. There's even a collaboration with French upstart Canblaster. Advanced Entertainment System is out on March 18; the artwork and tracklist are below.
1. Boot Screen
2. Oedo 606
3. Tiger Rhythm
4. Stronger (feat. Canblaster)
