Flood co-founder Doubt will release his new EP, Steam Cycle, via the label on 4th October.
The Cork hard drum collective, run alongside fellow DJ/producers Syn and Tension, has become somewhat of a bastion for the niche genre since launching in 2017. With a sound defined by heavy, syncopated percussion and minimal (but very effective) electronic flourishes, the Flood crew have played alongside scene originators such as NKC. They have also become key reference points for the genre’s development thanks to a slew of digital releases on the label, their tracks becoming a trademark in many a DJ set and recorded mix.
While Syn blew us away at Open Ear earlier this summer, it’s Doubt who steps up on the label next with its first release since Tension’s II in October last year. His new EP is easily his most accomplished to date, and comes paired with an equally ferocious remix from Her Records/Async Figure mainstay Suda.
You can hear ‘HD Tool’ from the EP below. Keep an ear out for the full EP in October.
