UK-based DJ/producer Wheats returns to Jamie Jones’ Hottrax this April with ‘Another Planet EP’, a set of three off-kilter house cuts.
Following releases on Kaluki, Circus, and Solid Grooves and picking up support from Hot Since 82, Pete Tong, Yousef and more, Wheats follows 2020’s ‘In Your Head’ EP with another highly anticipated package of bumpy house tracks for Jamie Jones’ Hottrax imprint.
Lead track ‘Humanic’ features Medusa’s manipulated vocals around a bed of glitchy and visceral clicks and pops, whizzing around grooving drum patterns and swung basslines. ‘Drive’, also featuring Medusa’s vocals, brings scratchy percussion and subtle rave stabs over gliding subs for an upbeat slice of dancefloor gold.
‘Insomniac’ brings a dose of the after-hours to the EP, making use of hypnotic drum patterns and energetic breakdowns, with the stuttering low end bringing the release to a trippy conclusion, marking a standout EP from Wheats on the consistently reliable Hottrax.
