“Future Primitives EP” is the latest release on Zodiac Wax by label founder Zodiac Childs.
Mystery surrounds the artist and label with active social media pages featuring zero content, other than the odd logo or release cover. This adds to the nostalgic feel of the EP, harking back to a time when white labels were the norm and often contained very little or no information.
This release is very much based around the sounds of the early nineties, from the rave breaks and Public Enemy samples on lead track “Future Primitives” to the sunrise hands in the air breakdown of “Tears”.
Immersive and focused “Get Back” rounds off the EP, containing a stripped back groove of looped breaks and a four-four kick drum, its subtle melody filters its way through the track. Hardcore stabs are used but cautiously, softened with FX and gentle keys.
A heads down moment to let the mind wander.
