James Bangura: E​-​FAX009

James Bangura’s latest EP has six tracks which casually fold shuffling breaks into refreshingly lush textures, then delicately heat up the club without getting dramatic about it. “Denitia Junction” is blown-out, spludgy hip-hop with wind-rush jungle synths and dubby vocal echoes. Then there’s more upbeat yet spacious, resonant club tracks like “Interpretive Dance” and “Incoherent Response”. The producer doesn’t go for big, heavy sounds or commanding basslines, or anything else that would make for obvious floorfillers, but the songs are so intricately arranged that they give your mind as much of a workout as your body.
