Introducing Time Is Now’s newest recruit, a link up that felt inevitable. A Bristol native, Borai has had a firm foot in the city’s bass scene since its inception, his steadfast dedication to rave culture helping to shape what it is today. When he’s not curating his own Higher Level label, helping steer the Club Glow collective, or cutting dubplates for Dubstudio, he’s exercising his passion for hardware, crafting vital DJ tools which span an impressive crosssection of the hardcore continuum. Naturally EP is a culmination of these endeavours, as well as his far-spanning influences.
We’re transported out of Bristol and into late 80’s Chicago - the golden era of garage house - via soulful vocals, nebulous melodies and saxophone whispers. It wouldn’t be a Borai release, though, without some UK flavours. Rich atmospheric jungle track ‘Phosphenes’ brings things to a euphoric close, and reminds us of the producer’s ambidexterity.
Naturally EP drops March 3rd via Time Is Now.
