Worldwide Premiere // NameBrandSound – Your Eyes (NBS Brukworx Version)
November 5, 2015
The musical journey between IG Culture and Alex Phountzi (Bugz In The Attic) goes way back. Pioneers of the broken beat scene, they were key players in it’s flagship night at Plastic People, Co-Op. These days they work together as NameBrandSound, channeling their roots in Jamaican-inspired UK soundsystem culture into a fusion they’ve coined as Brukworx. A mix of dancehall, jungle, footwork, 2-step, soul and broken beat, it injects London’s bass music energy with the spirit of classic, 90′s-era DnB.
Following a debut EP (Nowadays Pressure) on Technicolor/NinjaTune in 2014 and a follow-up (Spaceship EP) on their own Arena Yard imprint, NBS return with Your Eyes, a collaboration with UK production team Zay&D x Shin to mark the launch of IG Culture’s new imprint Reptown Music. Sitting alongside the original and a 160 bpm dancefloor heater, the Brukworx version slows things to half speed, giving Mark Asari’s vocals the room to make a maximum impact.
Your Eyes EP is out 6th November, pre-order from iTunes now.
