Endgrain signs to October Records & shares his debut single from forthcoming EP
Sydney producer/DJ Endgrain (Jackson May), today shares his debut single “4 x 4" - a pulsating first offering as the most recent signee to October Records.
Originally drawing inspiration from colourful beatmakers such as Bonobo and Quantic, May’s scope as a producer has evolved to increasingly draw on UK club culture, house and techno. His output varies from laid-back, dusty summer slow jams through to heart-racing, high impact club music and almost everything in between.
Having already been played on BBC Radio 1 & Triple J ahead of its release, "4 x 4" is the first taste from May's forthcoming debut EP and is him at his most immediate - a rolling, hypnotic arrangement of looping percussion, compelling bass and addictive sampling combining to form a high-energy house cut ready made for dance floors. It showcases everything that excites us about May’s output; simple, club-inspired instrumentation, intuitive pacing and a sub-rattling low end that is guaranteed to make crowds move.
With an enthusiasm for quality and a DIY-attitude, May is also one of the brains behind Sydney’s renowned Translate Sound System. After attending some of Europe’s leading electronic festivals, May and two friends were inspired to build their own high-quality, high-output sound system to help power Sydney’s thriving underground party scene. In addition, May regularly sends his music to London to be pressed to acetate, allowing him to play unique, all-vinyl sets of original material through his own custom built system. He has performed at warehouse parties across Sydney as well as powering the sound for events such as Picnic, Chipped, Yolk and Dungeon amongst others.
Having produced music under a handful of previous monikers, May today announces his new Endgrain project and signs to October Records. Stay tuned for more from his forthcoming EP due soon & catch him at October Nights on Friday March 3 at Civic Underground in Sydney (details below).
"4 x 4" is out today via October Records.
