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.

Ever the cheeky talent, Tiger Stripes has returned to his compatriot Adam Beyer‘s Truesoul with an uplifting new EP titled, Sneaking Hotdogs Into People’s Pockets. Similarly to his last release on the imprint, the cheerfully quirky Sound Of The Bettest, his newest two-tracker also plays around with retro sounds to create an infectious atmosphere that gives way to an auditory trip down memory lane. The producer is clearly an expert at creating a mood in each of his singles.

Take B-side “Guidelines,” which harkens back to the wave of 80s & disco-inspired tunes that came out during the aughts. Its simple, yet catchy hook even bears a comparable arrangement to Eric Prydz’ infamous “Call On Me;” yet “Guidelines” feels a bit more modern and timeless in its ultimate construction. Vintage vocal clips held down by driving, toughened percussion make “Guidelines” adaptable to the peak time in its power level—and primed to elevate moods wherever it’s played.
