Hot off the back of his rapturously received ‘Chroma’ EP which dropped late last year, London based artist/producer BEARCUBS has today announced a new 4 track EP ‘Underwaterfall’, due for release on 10th March via All Points.
Bearcubs is the immersive, electronic project of 25-year old Jack Ritchie. He’s been putting out material for the past 2 years, and has honed in on a distinctly unique blend of emotive electronic, future garage and lo-fi house music, which has seen him heavily championed across the radio airwaves, with ‘Chroma’ added to the BBC Radio 1 Introducing Playlist and getting spun by the likes of Annie Mac,Zane Lowe, Danny Howard and Monki. Further support has come from FADER, i-D, Noisey, Mixmag, Majestic Casual, The Line of Best Fit and more. The ‘Underwaterfall’ four-track collection showcases the diversity of Bearcubs’ sound, from melancholic, introspective gems to intelligent, club-ready cuts.
In tandem with the announcement, the title track premiered via Mistajam’s Power Down Playlist on BBC Radio 1 and FADER, who said “”Underwaterfall,” is a precise exercise in tension and release: one moment, it’s sparse melody, the next it’s an immersive swarm of synths and layered vocals”. Listen to the track in full below:
