Preview John Heckle's Upcoming 'Laid Away' EP
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Liverpool producer and former Bubblin' Up subject John Heckle took a major leap last year, particularly with the release of his sophomore album, Desolate Figures, and the subsequent Baiyun Mountain EP. Next month, he'll be issuing his latest missive, the Laid Away EP. Known for his love of raw, blown-out sounds and in-the-red house and techno constructions, Heckle will continue those tendencies here, as "Laid Away" is said to be powered by "myriad synth lines all squiggling about above jacking, rough-edged house beats." Similarly, b-side "DDT" is described as a song where "everything comes coated in layers of dirt and dust, be it the sporadic cowbell ping, the scraping percussive smears, or the frenzied synth lines."
Scheduled for release on April 21 via the Scenery label, Heckle's new record will also include "Laid Away" remixes from Perseus Traxx and Ksoul & MuteOscillator. A preview of each track on the Laid Away EP can be heard below.
