A 4 track rave ep (16m 33s) — released February 12th 2016 on Infinite Machine

Londoner Joe Brooks, pka IYDES, having debuted via Dandelion Lotus Records in 2014 and following-up his GETME! release in 2015, is now joining the Infinite Machine fam via an ebullient self-titled EP. A regular of the London club scene, a DIS Magazine favorite and co-curator of the Tropical Waste parties and NTS sets alongside Mixmag digital editor Seb Wheeler, he herein embarks on an exploration of discordant riddim and tropical subversions.

Indeed, opener "Leaving Thrice" deceptively evokes nigh-balearic vibes before erupting into off-kilter dancefloor pummeling with subtle afro-caribean inflections. Follower "Skin" takes a more languorous approach, with the interplay of sparser percussion and dubbed-out plucks executing a subdued dembow pulse.

On the digital flip, "Worship" takes the proceedings into full-gear, sounding like a bombastic, cyber-augmented instrumental for an Elephant Man track from 2027. Remixer Endgame seems to have taken the same cue from the track, retaining the dancehall slant while pushing it further into digital claustrophobia.
