Bleep Bloop is back with The Fifth Pupil EP, out on DJ Shadow’s Liquid Amber label. The four-track EP is experimental Hip-Hop and bass music at its finest.
A throwback to the classic leftfield music from revered labels like Warp, Planet Mu and Ninja Tune, but with a modern twist, the EP ignites with with the gloomy title track which sounds like a blast of machine gun bass and percussion to the body; relentless to the end. “Angry” highlights Bleep Bloop’s diverse musical palette with a classic jazz percussion structure that feeds rubbery basslines into snare rolls. “Man and Machine” is proper drill n bass, the soundtrack to an automated world where machine-lead processing overtakes the human touch. The “EP” closes out with “Angry (Paint Remix),” an alternate, more aggressive take on the original.
