The next release on Barbecue comes in the shape of a four-track EP from Blutch. We're told that the release sees the French producer show a "new side" of himself with" three bangers," all of which draw influences from hip-hop, house, and soul for a "more powerful and electronic effect."
On remix duties is Red Rack'em, who had this to say:
"My love of East Coast US hip-hop has always informed my more clubby productions so when Blutch sent me his raw MPC house EP and asked me to remix a track I immediately went for "Dropin A Chrome" and tried to inject some of the jazzy, golden years NYC vibes that massively influenced my musical tastes as a teenager. I was trying to reference acts like A Tribe Called Quest and Black Sheep without resorting to too many dude house cliches. This was the eighth remix (out of nine) I completed last year so my motto for this year is "just say no!"
A1. Blutch "Dropin A Chrome"
A2. Blutch "Ezra Was Not Right"
