The Brighton four-piece Kudu Blue encompass influences from across both time and space from 90s trip-hop & sound system culture, all the way through to Buddhist chanting. This week they released their latest single ‘Mountain Song’ out now!
Collectively they combine to bring on a new wave of progressive UK dance, epitomised with their forthcoming “Auras” EP due May 24, and a sound that has already won them fans including BBC Radio 1, NME, Wonderlandand Pigeons & Planes.
Owen (keys), Tom (bass), Creeda (rhythms) and Clem (vocals) entirely self-recorded and produced the EP, using a home studio that they moved between their various homes.
“Mountain Song” soars as its name suggests, a groovy drum break switching to four four as Clem’s powerful range is accentuated by deep, swelling bass.
Driven by talent, curiosity and an unyielding can-do attitude, Kudu Blue give you a refreshing snap shot of dance music in the UK in 2019, a back to basics postcard from the underground club scene.
