Bunker NY line up new EPs from Gunnar Haslam and Wata Igarashi


The four-track EP ‘Seasick Acid’ is an aquatic addition to the Gunnar Haslam multiverse. We asked Gunnar Haslam about the story behind this EP, his third release on The Bunker NY on 21st June, confirming that he has not been recently seasick but did grow up by the ocean spending plenty of time on boats as a young man.

He went on to explain “the best nights out hearing music are the rocky ones, not the smooth voyages”.

‘The Kioku’ EP is Wata Igarashi’s third release on The Bunker New York also due out on 21st June. This release showcases a considerable emotional range that speaks to his long career as a sound designer.

All four tracks feature a cinematic, expansive quality that makes it easy to imagine how each could fit specific moments across the arc of a party. Different aspects of the music are carefully balanced and combined: seemingly simple patterns in the foreground are animated by precise intensities at play in the background.

We encourage you to give this one a listen on a proper sound system or headphones to fully dive into the intricacies of Igarashi’s sound design.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
