Chrizpy Chriz- Unstable EP


CHRIZPY CHRIZ makes his METHLAB RECORDINGS debut with the UNSTABLE EP, bringing his syncretic blend of bass music to augment the label’s experimental edges. With the release already supported by Amon Tobin, among others, the "Unstable" EP is set to land with a heavy impact. Rising quickly on the virtues of his productions across labels such as the VALE collective and Gravitas Music, CHRIZPY CHRIZ’ works have seen support across the whole of the bass music spectrum, including the staple podcast Noisia Radio. Continuing in his production of these innovative sonics, CHRIZPY CHRIZ now brings the UNSTABLE EP to METHLAB RECORDINGS packed with five tracks that continue to display his exacting ability in auditory creation.

The discordant ALIEN LANGUAGE opens UNSTABLE with a decidedly halftime focus, punctuating the style’s monolithic basslines with a variety of high end sonics that are warped to form sinister tonalities. BRAIN RESET sets its focus on a glitched out topline, which rolls over a series of tonal kickdrums and oscillating basses interspersed with breakbeat percussion. From amidst the swirling textures of NYARLATHOTEP emerges a distinctly distorted set of low end frequencies, which are folded under own intense pressure to imbue the track with an otherworldly low end character. UGLY then draws on the analogue timbres of jazz and hip hop, merging them with digital counterparts to create a novel visage from their amalgamated conventions. The EP is then closed by its titular track, which unifies UNSTABLE’s constituent parts in order to mark its endpoint with decisive finality.

With UNSTABLE, CHRIZPY CHRIZ finds a fitting home on METHLAB RECORDINGS as he delivers five tracks shaped by his inimitable sonic character for an EP that slips free from the restraints of classification.
