Tsuruda has released a new EP on Alpha Pup, titled FUBAR.

The 10-track EP (incl. bonus track) is Thomas Tsuruda’s first outing on Alpha Pup, following five self-released LPs plus numerous singles on labels like Team Supreme and Darker Than Wax. His first official LP, Move, was released in 2016 by Division Recordings, a label curated by drum & bass legend Noisia, and he followed it in 2018 with the album Unlimited Data on Courteous Family.

The Japanese-American producer wrote the EP over the course of the past year in the his Los Angeles apartment. The label explains that the four-tracker “leaves only rubble in its wake,” and that “brains burst into flames. Planets explode. Dancefloors are liquidated into quivering pools of melt that pulsate with every jolt of multi-dimensional bass.”

Tsuruda adds: “I wanted to write something more geared to festivals and the club setting. A shorter release with heavier tracks.”
