The work of Fracture is a bass lover's dream. Fierce and frantic, his work can't really be pinned to one genre, but his output in the last few years is some of freshest around.
Let's start with 'Loving Touch', a tough, rolling juke workout sampling Ralphi Rosario's 'You Used To Hold Me'. It smacks from start to finish and rigourously refreshed the 1987 house hit. Then there's the crooning riddim 'Dead & Bury' with Moresounds that was rinsed by the likes of Ivy Lab throughout 2015 and made it into our tunes of the year.
Early doors we know, but we've already made a note of new tune 'Makin' Hype Tracks' in our list of potential biggest tunes of 2016. "Makin hype tracks, so don't compare me to whack shit" is how it goes and the vocal's not wrong. Rough and tumbling, Fracture's produced an absolute bass cannonball, one we can't wait to hear on a beastly soundsystem.
For now, listen to our premiere below.
The 'Hype Tracks' EP is out via Exit Records on February 5, featuring DJ Spinn, DJ Taso and Deft. Buy it here
