While having gone through a number of names, Nottingham producer/DJ duo Ursa Major (previously known as MeMeMe and Waves) seems to have finally settled on an appropriate moniker with its forthcoming debut on Trouble & Bass, the Blacklight EP. Coming from that release, “Crab Apple” showcases the talented up-and-comers as they leave familiar Trouble & Bass territory for a moody—yet ravey—musical topography. The rhythm is tropical, but not sunny; a snare-driven, steel drum-pummeled pattern hurtles the song towards a shipwreck of a breakdown. Riding the percussion is a chopped-up female vocal sample that goes off like a warning klaxon. Check out “Crab Apple” below and grab the EP on May 3.
