The Southern returns to the EI8HT with his ‘Raw Break’ EP


Italian DJ/producer, The Southern, returns to the EI8HT label after 2020’s ‘Raw Culture’ EP, with another collection of bass bin rattling, high octane, techno bangers on the ‘Raw Break’ EP.

Since his last appearance on Eats Everything & Andres Campo’s label, The Southern has notched up releases for Truncate, Say What?, Tronic, and his own raw thing. label, amongst others.

The Southern hails from Matera in the South Of Italy. He has focused his productions for labels including Tronic, Odd Recordings and Doppelgaenger. This EP has 4 original tracks, ‘Tree Of Life’ takes things soulful and deeper. Whilst ‘Interference’ had Morse code like sonics which creates a powerful groove. It’s more relentless and energetic, with a beat that gets your feet stomping. Tuned’ is full of late-night vibes. Its Grimey bass stabs and scattergun percussions are joined by eerie sonics which takes the track into a surprising new direction.

‘Come With Me’ boots things off in fine fettle, as incessant organ stabs and reverb-soaked pads tuck into a clap happy drum workout that really soars. Granite hard beats and metallic hats carve through ‘Raw Break’, as its vocal gets pulverised, whilst ‘Raw Organ’ slides into Chi-town jackin’ tech territory, with a nod to the Dance Mania style and a slammin’ vibe stamped all over it. ‘Trax Jam’ closes this stellar EP, again, showing The Southern’s more housier chops, whilst still keeping the energies spiralling.

We premiere ‘Raw Break’ on NUDE Techno today, Check it out below and grab the whole EP, here.

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.
