Cressida - Sambo
Back in stock: 26th October 2020
Genre: Experimental, Electronic
Having established himself as a key member of the Voitax roster with a love letter to the Orgazoid on his last outing, Berlin-based, UK-born producer Cressida returns to the fold with yet another genre blurring masterclass in formless electronica as the forward facing German imprint continues to provide a platform for a number of dance music's most innovative artists. Finding himself spending his time in lockdown reflecting on his formative years within the darker strands of London's varied underground electronic music scene, the Sambo EP serves as potent reminder of the stunning level of diversity that can be found within the Capital as Cressida incorporates the bass fuelled sounds of his youth into a series of DnB speckled cuts that defy conventional classification. Housing the power of jungle, dubstep and grime within the kind of gritty heads-down framework that has become his calling card in recent times, Cressida's carefully crafted blend of terse percussion, piercing tones and sonorous samples showcase the shadowy producer's talents at their eclectic best.
