Endgame – “Felony Riddim”
Over the last few years, club music has become a battleground for new artists experimenting with exciting sounds and ideas with the JANUS collective in Berlin, the Bala Club crew in London, and N.A.A.F.I. gang from Mexico City leading the charge. This deconstructed approach to production has roots in singular club nights and has since grown to be a worldwide phenomenon. London based producer and DJ, Endgame, is one of the members of the Bala Club crew along with peers Kamixlo, Uli K, Lexxi, and Blaze Kidd. He has been a fixture at both their thrilling club nights and helms the always interesting NTS show, Precious Metals.
After releases on Golden Mist Records and Purple Tape Pedigree, Endgame has announced his third 12” release, Flesh, on July 22nd via the world-renowned Hyperdub label. Ahead of the EP drop, he has shared the instrumental “Felony Riddim,” a track filled with booming bass and a sharp synth that sounds like a wind chime made of icicles. Similar to other tracks of his, it has an almost clinical feel in its production that evokes feelings of raving in Silent Hill. Similar to his mates in Bala Club, the music is influenced by reggaeton, grime, and drill, which will be sure to get the dance floor fiending for more. Endgame is currently booking dates in North America for 2016, so be sure to catch him playing his monstrous creations out live in a city near you. Check out “Felony Riddim” below and be sure to cop the Flesh EP when it’s available digitally next month.
