Before the fledgling Astral Black label begins issuing full vinyl releases next year, the UK outpost has elected to begin introducing its roster of artists via a series of limited-edition cassettes, the latest of which comes from Edinburgh-based producer Jaisu. Utilizing a “100% sample-based” production method, Jaisu crafts collage-like pieces of electronic-minded instrumental hip-hop. One such production is “Whiplash Trash,” a steadily moving beat that—even within the course of just three minutes—can’t really decide what it wants to be. Fortunately, the multitude of various forms Jaisu lands on throughout “Whiplash Trash” are all solid in their own right, and the results certainly boast well for A Short Album, the man’s forthcoming 12-track cassette release from which this tune stems.
