Chuurch have today dropped their full EP – Uunion – on Skrillex’s free download imprint NEST. The 4 track EP, which was teased by singles One Mind and Erase The Pain feat. Blak Trash, is one of the most sonically unique projects we’ve heard in a while, grabbing listeners attention with “Lean Bass” production that has become their hallmark sound.
The EP is defined by it’s relunctantly slow but engaging pace, and tasty blend of hip-hop and electronica. Rife with vocal samples and chunky basslines, the EP should delight fans across a multitude of genres, a true mishmash of styles both in terms of the music itself and Chuurch’s dark and somber visual aesthetic.
“This EP is a step outside the usual comfort zone of dance, we want people to embrace the dark side on this one,” – remarks Chuurch
With previous releases on Zeds Dead’s label Deadbeats and Billy Kenny’s label, This Ain’t Bristol – Chuurch have begun to bubble up in the underground and through this latest Uunion EP release on NEST – we think Chuurch’s time has come to pick up traction in the mainstream. With several festival shows in the works in the summer, including DeadRocks at Red Rocks in July, it’s clear that 2018 should be a big one for the Calgary-based production duo.
