How do you like your eggs in the morning? PRTCL likes his with a dollop of bass and some watertight drums. Then he likes to package it up as one half of his huge new release, stick a collab with Survey on the other side and put it out on his own Notion Audio label.
The producer explains the novel story behind the deep, taught A-side ‘Scrapyard’: “The idea for the track came together after I bought a handheld recorder. I was making breakfast and thought the sound of pots and pans clanging against surfaces in the kitchen sounded quite cool, so I tested out my handheld recorded for the first time and recorded myself making breakfast. The recording was put into a project I was working on and the pots hitting the sink made up the main hook of that project.”
And AA-side ‘Traction’, all tumbling drums and bass stabs, came together quickly with the help of German duo Survey. PRTCL said: “‘Traction’ was the first of many collaborations that I have started with Survey. The guys were coming to London to play at a Flexout night and I put them up in my room for the weekend. I started a project that we could work on while they were at my house in London, but we ended up working on it ahead of their visit.”
