Squelch & Clap (UK) artist, B-Ju, produces experimental electronica bass, and hip-hop tracks on a future tip.
B-Ju’s latest release, “Eclectic Zoo” (2012) is an experimental bass EP that features elements of UK/future garage, and electronica. Each of the tracks on the release have chopped and screwed vocals, supporting the left-of-centre, spaced out beats. In addition, the release features elements of cosmic jazz, in terms of the melody of certain instruments. The lush 80s synth pads, a prevalent element of the homie’s production, are smooth in texture and make for an enjoyable sound.
On the electronic hip-hop side, B-Ju released “Prozac People” also in 2012, still in line with the B-Ju style of lush synth and chopped vocals, however, the drum kicks being more ‘hip-hop’ in this release. Although the dude has been quiet of late, the current tracks on his soundcloud, as well as his current releases are straight up timeless.
