Former Beatport and Juno Records #1 artist Budakid’s back on Exploited with another two sublime productions. Heady tinges of melody greet us from the first second on ‘Phantonym’, the groove building in a gentle afro/tech vibe with woodblock rhythms and shimmering hi-hats. Pretty riffs abound over a subtle bass of low-register pads and the driving, throbbing bass and stab groove. Dreamy arpeggios dance dazzlingly in the higher echelons of the track, leading the way to a blissed-out breakdown and another delectable synth refrain that chimes in time with the groove. Beautifully crafted, delicately poised, and goosebump-inducing. ‘Pizza Pizza’ is as tasty as it sounds. A more groovy affair than its accompaniment on this release, it whisks together discofied bass with an unusual stuttered lead riff and magical atmospheres that create a glowing, warm feel. Tambourines provide the main percussive propulsion, and hazy sampled chords add to the cosy soundscape. ‘Pizza Pizza’ is a collaboration with Budakid’s buddy El Zárate who is a new face on the scene.
Budakid’s been on fire recently, getting asked by Hot Since 82 to remix Nick Curly for his Knee Deep Recordings label, Moscoman and by Frankey & Sandrino for their Sum Over Histories label, and scored a Beatport No. 1 with Matthias Meyer on Watergate Records. That’s not to mention releases on Disco Halal and upcoming
collaborations with more hot talent…
