BALUT005: NDV – South Bridge EP
South Bridge is a big, shiny scaffold, connecting the southern hemisphere continents, namely Africa and South America, with an imaginary spot in London. It’s linking the London heritage of heavy bass, broken beats & UK funky with Afro-Latin rhythms and percussion – from afro-techno beats to acidic cumbia.
The South Bridge EP is inspired by the fresh attitude of the UK Funky sound, but tries to take it another notch up, making the tracks a bit more than just DJ tools, injecting it with more emotional substance, melodic twists and more fully realized arrangements.
NDV is one half of Polar Pair and part of the Botanika label / DJ crew.
Southbridge EP cover was designed by Tubi, a local designer and fellow DJ.
South Bridge EP is released digitally on October 19th Through Botanika Records.
