Rising British electronic DJ / production duo TIBASKO are poised to announce a brand new release with the arrival of ‘Traces / Gradients’, lifted from their forthcoming self-titled EP due this September through Another Rhythm.
Drawing on a myriad on influences from techno, house and breaks. This ethos of discovery and experimentation firmly plants TIBASKO in the driving seat of modern, progressive creators.
They say: “The beginning phase of this EP perfectly captures the feeling that this extended project will go down, showing a diverse and eclectic side of all things TIBASKO. We wanted to encorporate a wide range of production techniques across this project and you’ll hear them in both Traces and Gradients. Going back to our love of digging through worldly music, we’ve found Bulgarian Folk music has this incredibly captivating element to it. ‘Traces’ features a beautiful vocal stemming from old Thracian folklore, which showcases intense and dissonant vocals. Paired with the big, dreamy synth elements we created, we feel it’s drawn out a mysterious and haunting feel to the track. ‘Gradients’ acts as a juxtaposition to ‘Traces’ – we intentionally gave it a more industrial and experimental sound parallel to what you’d find in those sweaty basement raves, whilst the vocals still retain that tribal element we love to include in our music.”
Confirmed for Snowbombing Festival (Austria), Hideout Festival (Croatia), Boardmasters (UK), Nass Festival (UK), Cultivate Festival (UK), Verve Festival (Switzerland), El Dorado Festival (UK), Fields Of Fantasy (UK) and Queens Yard Summer Party (UK), TIBASKO are on for an exciting UK/EU festival season.
They have also confirmed their debut USA tour for September this year, a staple moment in their touring journey as they look to solidify their place amongst the strongest emerging electronic music artists to be breaking out of the UK.
Focusing on their forthcoming EP until summer takes over, TIBASKO’s eclectic menagerie of styles promises further intriguing shifts in tone as they aspire to reach a deeper emotional connection with their audience.
