People who would dismiss Robert Balotsky as "another trap producer" are dangerous fools who should be avoided. The type who steal your favorite brown lighters and hit on your girlfriend at your birthday party. We're thrilled to sport the brand new EP from Buku, out today on UKF founder Luke Hood's Pilot Records.The Down EP is more Boys Noize than Brillz, with ragged techno aethestics splayed over knee-breakin' beats. The best thing about the EP's three tracks is that each has its own identity, and each is so uniquely original, you'll have to craft some new moves to get down as hard your ears demand.
The title track shreds contemporary trap tropes with an aggressive, driving pulse that isn't afraid to get out there. Try not to get down to "Down." Then "Click Clack" slips in with its jungle flavors and a laser-guided synthline that wrecks speakers. Makes you feel ten feet tall. EP closer "No One Does" has to be autobiographic, because no one is taking tech house to the hood like Buku. We're absolutley blown away by the total disregard for rules that Balotsky demonstrates with this infallible offering.
