A. Kusp - Getting By
B. Kusp - Lustre
For our fifth outing, and our first of 2017, we’ve carefully handpicked two tracks from the prodigiously talented Kusp. Hailing from the UK’s South Coast, Kusp’s on his way to carving out a niche with a tight production style that seemed ready made for Context.
We’ve managed to get him off the hard stuff and into the deep end, delivering a solid, two-track release that’s equal parts epic, lush and filthy.
Getting By, on the A side, is menacingly low slung, saturated in hip hop influences. It rolls into the deep end with a graceful weight and a shocking power that’ll stun anyone within earshot into an awed silence.
The flip, Lustre, is much more conventional, but no less potent. It’s a big, crisp, clinical liquid roller with enough soul to send shivers up your spine, but enough rolling bass to make you move your feet.
Sticking to our maxim of solid, well-engineered D&B CTX005 is the first chapter in what we hope will be a very promising 2017.
