Wormhole resident and bass badasss Duffrey today dropped his latest album on the international glitch, downtempo, and psybass outlet Shanti Planti. Spanning fourteen tracks, including a couple collabs with CelloJoe and one with UNTZ fave Tha Fruitbat, The World That You Know is a twisted tale melding the weird, oddest aspects of psybass with the contemporary glitch-hop and underground bass scenes.
Now that the album's out, we can highlight one of our favorite tracks from the release, which just happens to be the nickname of our favorite Bay Area weekly (just kidding, Wormhole—but imagine a steampunk junkyard on Mars—pretty cool, huh?).
“The Cosmic Dump” is a whirling, swirling dusty cut of goop-drenched Furbys and discarded grandfather clocks. It's a mess of gears spilling out of a Dali painting on a particularly windy day. Like a lost collab between Circuit Bent and Spoonbill, Duffrey's composition darts frenetically from groove to groove with the flourish of a magician pulling a grotesque guinea pig from a flatbrim. For those who like it weird, you've come to the right place.
That place is The Untz Festival, I should clarify. One of Wormhole's faves, it wouldn't be right to have a night with the Gnargate without Duffrey manning the controls. He'll be joined by fellow residents Krakinov, Secret Recipe, Shwung, and Dastardly, as well as headliners Of The Trees, The Librarian, and the always exciting Ivy Lab.
