After taking an extended hiatus to reflect on his sound, Utrecht-based producer TMSV returned with a purposeful disregard for the constraints of genres and tempos. The music following the break was a varied-yet-cohesive set of cuts ranging from 100 bpm to 170 bpm, standout tracks that would end up on heavyweight labels such as J:Kenzo’s Artikal, Om Unit’s Cosmic Bridge, and Rua sound.

The latest of the batch is Aku, a six-track EP for fledging Nottingham label Tumble Audio. The EP will follow up releases from Killjoy, Doctor Jeep, Boofy, and Deadbeat UK with three TMSV originals and three remixes from Archive, Murder He Wrote, and Hypho. Across the six tracks, TMSV and his cohorts jump between grime, jungle, and drum & bass, all with a certain ’90s rave nostalgia.

Aku will drop via Tumble Audio on November 14, with EP cut “Nuh Tek Diss” available as one of today’s XLR8R downloads below.
