Another dope release from the guys over at Saturate Records! This time a compilation featuring some of our favourite artists, such as Ambassadeurs, Om Unit, Acre, Manni Dee, Coco Bryce and more. Saturate is definitely a label we think you should be keeping a close eye on, some huge releases in the past and it just keeps getting better!
The guys over at Saturate Records just put out this EP from, friend of the site, Acre. Some nice little gems on this EP. I’m particularly feeling IHEWA Pt.2, a slow moving glitch fest akin to the likes of Zomby’s early releases, and I Saw The Crescent (which we first posted just over a year ago, nice to see it getting a proper release!)
Acre was one of the artists featured on our first EP, Random World Generator (eyes peeled for the second EP in the coming months). He gave away this free EP of synths, bleeps and bass that spreads across numerous genres just 10 days ago. He has another EP dropping soon on Saturate Records, looks like Saturate are going to be making moves in 2011.
Our first EP has been a long time in the making and has been pushed back a few times due to moving houses, dissertations, new jobs and all that jazz, but it’s finally here! It should hopefully be the first of many releases as we’re are definitely trying to make it a regular thing. We have always been keen to showcase producers, MCs, bands, beat makers and general musicians who’s music we love and feel that you should know about! We hand picked all the artists on this EP and they are either up and coming in the scene or have recently become more established.

We have a track from an upcoming talent from Manchester UK, today. Acre contacted us a few weeks ago linking us to his soundcloud page where we found quite a few nice tracks which you definitely need to check out! Our favourite happened to be a track entitled I Saw the Crescent, which has a slightly similar vibe to say Fantastic Mr. Fox, full of great sounds and a catchy melody. He was kind enough to let us put it up for an exclusive free download at 320kbps. We’re looking forward to hearing more from this guy and look out for more exclusives from YSK in the future!
