So hard to pick a favourite on this one. Surly's take on footwork/juke is absolutely unique and I can't wait to hear more from the guy. Big up the Polish Juke familia everytime!
Favorite track: Train To Lodz.
Polish Juke is more than proud to present the newest release in its catalogue; first one recorded by a foreign artist. The man behind 'Trip to Warsaw' EP is Surly, a producer and a DJ representing New Zealand and the Californian crew Juke Bounce Werk.
The album, deeply rooted in jazz aesthetics and harmonics, offers an unparalleled experimental, avant-garde sound, rich in its mix and in numerous textures hidden in the colourable calmness of all the tracks. From strictly jazz-oriented compositions ('Thriteen', '4Q 510-511', 'Train to Lodz') to the more hip-hop and R&B influenced cuts ('Scare Em to Death', 'Wait Till the Sick Comes').
'Trip to Warsaw' is a finessed journey combining inimitable melodies, minimalism, broken rhythmics and the one-of-a-kind, unique for Surly’s style footwork groove.
