Gerry Read Returns to Fourth Wave on Upcoming 12"
- Words: James Eaton
After releasing his Shrubby EP via Aus earlier this year, secretive UK producer Gerry Read will return to the Fourth Wave label with a new two-track 12" later this month. The 21-year-old producer's next effort for his regular label home appears set to find him continuing to explore the more blurry ends of groove-led house with the a-side of the forthcoming effort, "Socialize," described as a production where "heartfelt vocals and lush pads are bought together in a dreamy groove." On the flip, Read is said to indulge in some boogie-house vibes, with "Charcoal" focusing on "moody chords and an utterly unyielding bassline."
Read's eighth release for RAMP's Fourth Wave imprint is set to land on May 26; before then, it's artwork and tracklist have been included below.
