The Timedance hot streak continues apace with another futuristic, mind-messing club cut

The South West is at the heart of UK club music innovation right now, with a young cohort of mostly Bristol-based producers reshaping sounds in their own forward-thinking interpretation. Bruce is a key figure leading the boundary-breaking charge.

Through releases on Hessle Audio, Dnous Ytivil and Idle Hands, he’s showcased a unique and compelling approach to production, characterised by warped and incongruous sound design that still holds emotional resonance.

His next outing is a two-track EP on Timedance. It’s arguably been the standout imprint of 2016, with three other mind-bending records released from Lurka, Ploy and bossman Batu. Considering the latter two artists happen to be Bruce’s housemates, where according to Ploy they “live together in a sort of utopian Timedance commune”, it’s no surprise to see Bruce now step up to make his debut on the label with another first-rate instalment.

A-side cut ‘I’m Alright Mate’ is a fraught aural experience that overlays a functional foundation with skewed and spiky outer textures. Check out the premiere below.

'I'm Alright Mate' is out on September 30, pre-order it via Bandcamp
