Debut Transmission: Otik – Bulldog
Canada’s Infinite Machine has become something of a favourite in the DT office over the past few years. The Montréal-based label has built up an impressive archive of material, including the debut album of Tessier-Ashpool boss Liar, killer EPs from Seafloor and Korma, and outstanding pay-what-you-want annual compilations. Now it’s the turn of London’s Otik, and once again, Infinite Machine isn’t going to disappoint.
Fresh off the back of his Emphasis EP for Liar’s aforementioned imprint, Otik offers up 4 servings of ten tonne, break-driven belters, fusing together hardcore, jungle and grime. Today’s premiere, ‘Bulldog’, aches with ’90s nostalgia, but still offers a punchier, more full-bodied sound that ultimately gives it a modern edge.
Taken from the Strangelove EP, ‘Bulldog’ is due for release July 24th; head over to the Infinite Machine Bandcamp from then to grab a copy.
