Stucco Swim

A 3 track leftfield/idm ep (13m 49s) — released June 3rd 2013 on Diskotopia

Diskotopia are proud to announce the debut release from Serifu, entitled Stucco Swim. Although a new name in the industry, what is certain is that this entrance places itself firmly in and outside the realms of modern electronic music as we know it. There is a truly singular vision at work here which is hard to pin down: kaleidoscopic imaginations of club paradigms and funk grooves, envisioned through an approach to composition that is as much a fundamental disintegration of dance music keystones, as it is a construction of fresh bracing parallels.

Stucco Swim is the first introduction to Serifu's sonic stimulus and it sounds like a Rubix Cube's descent down a flight of stairs rigged with synthetic booby traps. Gurgling drums and persistent yet skewed percussion intertwine a potpourri of shredded vocal chants, jungle bass hits, laser smudges, washed out pads and bits of otherworldly artifacts yet to be discovered. Like a new angular fusion of Mozambique and dancehall created by rhythmic splashes of paint on a chrome floor.

Said Situation is another confounded beast altogether: placing lineage to something between classic 1980s electro and a very warped vision of 90s salsa-house, while incorporating manic percussive bursts, frantic sprints of distorted electronics and earworm-induced string leads. Consider this a dance-floor anthem for b-boy perverts in the first clubs of the Mars colonies.

Concluding the release we come to School Slide, the darkest turn of events so far. Stomping kicks, fuzzy Dillinja-indebted low-end slides and queasy GM strings collide with more of Serifu's ethereal percussion, debased vocal concoctions and unhealthy twisted arpeggios to provide a stunning conclusion to this fascinating debut release.

I've always got time for a producer who is forming their own sound and this is evident in Serifu's work. Enjoy the way be shuffly techno rhythms with sounds somewhere from a next galaxy. Great fit to Diskotopia who always look to push the boundaries. - Visionist (Lost Codes, Keysound, Lo Note UK)

Really crazy, which is always a good thing in my book, i likes. - Alexander Nut (Rinse FM/ Eglo Reocrds)

This EP's serious!! so weird and wonderful. Right up my street. Really love Said Situation. Can see myself hammering these tunes for a while. - Shy One (DVA Music/Sub FM)

It's killing me! What a release! Stucco Swim and School Slide are killers. Very original and fresh. Said situation is also a well produced track and a good balance with the two others. This one will be massive. - Greg G (7even Recordings)

Tracks sounding good thanks! Gonna put on my next mix. - Ralph LTF (Wifey LND)

I love this man, nuts stuff but still with strong grooves amongst all the chaos. - Elsewhere (Liminal Sounds)

I like the style, especially Said Situation, definitely something I will play  - Crabbe (Bazzerk)

Wow this dude rips! Very unique and creative, really feeling it. Really interesting release here and the artwork is sick too, definitely well suited. Liking the overall dark vibes and the percussion does crazy things to my head. - Arctic (TRNSMT TV / Coyote Records)

This release is awesome man percussion is so on point. Done it again! - Ras Al Fatale (Sub FM)
