Exclusive Premiere: Sun People – Black Sphere (Rua Sound)

“Black Sphere” by Sun People is taken from the four track “These Days EP”, forthcoming on Rua Sound, released on November 29th.

Born out of a love for progressive electronic music, the Sun People project fuses elements of techno, hip hop, footwork, jungle and rare groove. The resulting sound is a perfect alchemy of musicality, soul and carefully placed kick drums.

“Give It Up”, the opening track on the EP, sets the tone with its mutated rare groove sample, old school vocal and chopped breaks. What could easily lead to a vintage jungle rinse out, and a good one at that, instead heads for a classic Hidden Agenda sound evoking memories of “Get Carter” and “The Flute Tune”.

There is an excitement that runs through the EP with tracks morphing quite unexpectedly and samples finding new spaces to inhabit, often out of context but sounding perfectly in place.

Contender for EP of the year “Black Sphere” draws the release to a close, an elegant halftime exit awash with mystery and grace.

The “These Days EP” will be available on both digital and vinyl formats, mastered by Macc and featuring artwork by Arkof and Graphic design by Barry Prendergast.
