Sheffield based event series (and now label), Groundwork, has been running small parties in intimate spaces, with the aim of pushing local DJ’s in a relaxed, non-commercial environment. Inaugurating the imprint is 18-year-old newcomer Porter Brook with his debut EP which effortlessly joins the dots between breakbeat, techno and UK bass. From the deep neo-junglist stepper “Exit 14th Street”, barrelling techno banger “Dipole” (laced with bustling drum machine breakbeats), to the intoxicating, contorted experimental twist of “K41 018 BXH9”, this is a quality debut from the Steel City. Let’s hope it won’t be too long before we get a sequel.
