TBRCK, formerly known as Tobrock, is releasing his first solo EP, titled EP #01 on August 3 via Germany’s Melting Pot label. The Cologne-based producer is carving a new path for himself under his new moniker, so don’t expect more of the “neo-boom-bap” sounds that often eminate from his hometown, as cut from TBRCK’s EP, “Humpback Whale Rider,” sits somewhere between house and funk. The cymbals keep the 4/4 beat as deep basslines and random drum clicks are interwoven. And between the oceanic synth swells and the obscured vocals sounding like someone is talking underwater, it’s no wonder the tunesmith called his production “Humpback Whale Rider.”
