fish x phil morgan x four three six

 

For the label’s third release Bristol’s Fish steps up on production duties. A part of a new breed of underground producers whose style pays homage to the UK’s bass culture while delivering a fresh new sound, Fish’s music has had regular rotation from the likes of Toddla T on Radio One and Marcus Nasty and Dappa on Rinse FM. The four tracks on Fish’s Move Ya Body EP show the diversity of this young talent’s production skills, from reggae tinged Tropical to grimey bassline, marrying both broken and four to the floor beats effortlessly.  Early support for the EP comes from AC Slater, Marcus Nasty, Shadow Child, DJ Craze, Distro and Tom Shorterz.

The artwork for this release comes from Philip Morgan, an artist and illustrator whose work is instantly recognisable and synonymous with the streets of Cardiff. Philip’s illustrations have been featured worldwide on walls, skateboards, t- shirts and posters and he has previously worked with Urban Outfitters and Giff Gaff. The design for the Move Ya Body combines vibrant, bold colours with a touch of humour to create an utterly distinctive piece of art that perfectly resonates with the feel of the music on the release.
