When it comes to the weird, experimental bass music that sends your mind into a spin, Slugabed is a producer pushing it right at the forefront.
The Bath producer, who pulls influences from hip hop to dubstep, is a long-time associate of pioneering UK imprint Ninja Tune, with a flurry of releases since 2010 including debut album 'Time Team' and, most recently, the woozy 'Do U C Me Tho'/'U Right'.
Following on with the 'Coolest' EP on Activia Benz, Slugabed continues his movement into more delicate territory with fine results. 'Real Buds' is one of the six tracks on the EP, a four-and-a-half minute rush compounded by the whirring of cosmic synths and relentless, hip hop-type vocal hooks.
The 'Coolest' EP is out via Activia Benz on July 7 and a 'Coolest' beach towel can be purchased here
