The Fat! Club EP001

"The Fat! Club EP 001 is the first in a new series of free mini-compilations showcasing tracks from some of the UK’s most exciting underground producers."

Chew the Fat aka The Fat! Club today released a nice EP available as a free download featuring up-and-coming talent in the likes of Pale, Wolf Cub and Origins Sound. It also boasts a few artists that I've been recently monitoring.

First track that stuck out to me looking at the track list was 'My Name' by Moe, which I've been going back to again and again via his SoundCloud (as well as featuring on the blog last November).

I described it then as an 'Uplifting house that builds with warm pads and a fantastic rolling baseline, along with a Alicia vocal sample that works effortlessly on top' and I still stand by that, which is good because I could copy/paste that opinion. Needless to say, I love this track.

DE$IGNATED are another group that have been on my radar and they nicely open the EP with 'What's It Gonna Be'. A slick production that shows another side to their production with some great dainty key and synth work. Much more to come from these guys.

The EP as a whole has a great selection of styles from a talented bunch of producers and it's a great snapshot of some up-coming talent.
