After the boom of pitch perfect, cleaner than clean house-music-with-heavy-bass deflated and subsided, fuzz and decay are two tools that seem to have crept into a lot of producer’s arsenals more and more. And whilst it’s important to acknowledge the fact that emphasizing rough textures isn’t really something new - it’s a concept that artists whose work has endlessly influenced the direction of our record label have built careers out of - it’s definitely an approach that’s had an impact on the musical output of Chris Sallows.
Working as Microburst, he’s released music on Svetlana Industries and Cleaning Tapes, but through accepting and developing his output to incorporate more distorted elements, he emerged out of his Dorset studio with a fully-fledged new artist project: Fuewa. Birth Palace, is the first official outing under his new moniker and across the 6 tracks he explores the reams of potential he found amongst a sound palette of blown out kick drums and jagged pads.
