For many years HØST has been a favourite of ours.
Not just because he is a banger merchant and has ridiculously good output, but also because of his gameness to experiment with head-bending aesthetics and the universe of freeform eclectic.
Since his last EP on Unchained back in May 2019, we have witnessed a meteoric rise in both his quality and quantity. It’s been one helluva year for him, churning out another 50 or so tracks across traditional digital stores pushed out by the likes of Dome of Doom, Saturate, Hooversound and others.
However, there are also dozens of hush-hush EPs and bits within his ‘Bandcamp only’ self-released catalogue. If you’re not on his mailing list then make sure you get the hell on it, so you can score his own releases on his Bandcamp page here for all that: hstmusic.bandcamp.com
His latest EP on Unchained, entitled Have and Have Nots, follows the path of his progression as an artist with a tasteful new direction. Two gorgeous liquid rollers with rich deep vocals by collaborators Phoebe Freya and Taurri, as well as two dirty dirty bangers that hurt in all the right places.
Whilst the Unchained crew has Drum and Bass roots, our hope has always been to fracture new paths without losing too many club-ready ears in the process.
HØST does all of that.
