Over the past eight months, the UK pair of Wallwork & RZR have maintained a regular presence in XLR8R‘s Downloads section, and right on schedule, the duo has returned to the fold with “Ibada Funk,” a bonus cut from the group’s upcoming Don’t Panic EP. Slated to arrive via newly launched East London label Nervous Horizon, the record appears set to find Wallwork & RZR continuing to craft mangled pieces of full-bodied club music, an artistic aim “Ibada Funk” certainly signals is alive and well for the pair. Riding a heavy-handed skip for most all of its five-minute run, the production laces its booming kicks and sharpened snares with layers of more cosmic sonics: slowly revolving pads, spacey chords, and distant FX fill the spaces left empty between the track’s formidable rhythmic structures. In addition to offering “Ibada Funk” here, Wallwork & RZR have also shared a preview stream of its forthcoming Don’t Panic EP (which features a remix from Deft) below; the record will serve as the Nervous Horizon imprint’s inaugural vinyl release when it lands on March 16.
