DANNY WHEELER, who creates fine broken beatz for Brighton’s ever-cracking Tru Thoughts as WheelUp, has released a new digital-only four-tracker, The Ndebele EP.
Underpinned on a fine jazzy keys vamp, title track “Ndebele” bites deeper and deeper on a bed of deep polyrhythm and lofts on Moogy squiggle.
Taking its concept from Danny’s father’s Zimbabwean tribe, The Ndebele EP (pronounced in-de-bele) is an effortless fusion of ice-cool nujazz and deeper breakz styles.
It’s as intelligent as it is insistent, and it’s one to nod in affirmation to on these long hot evenings.
