It’s been quite a few years since Will Clarke‘s most prominent offering was ‘Booty Percolatin’; his defining Dirtybird track that not only made him a permanent member of the crew, but a symbol for all things bouncing booty-house.
That track was released in 2016. Now it’s 2019, and Will Clarke is digging deeper and deeper. Over those three years, he’s morphed that rump-shaking aesthetic into a captivating middle ground between techno and tech-house, culminating recently in his new EP, Nothing Is Forever.
This is Clarke’s first solo EP on Drumcode‘s sister label, Truesoul. He was on the label prior a mere six months ago via his joint EP with Eli Brown entitled Our Love, and now he’s gone even darker with Nothing Is Forever. Each of the three tracks involves the kind of dissonant syncopation that ignites the energy at a techno warehouse party, and not a single vocal can be found on the EP which is rare considering Clarke’s past work.
With this new release, his remix getting placed on the upcoming iteration of Drumcode’s A-Sides compilation, and the growing steam behind Amok, his collaborative project with techno maven, Sian, Will Clarke could be spinning alongside the Drumcode team before long.
