‘Something Weirdcore’ is a 5-track EP from the mysterious Cucumb45. On the surface there are elements of jungle, breakbeat, techno and rave, but to say this EP spans genres would be an understatement – it defies them.
The title track instantly commands attention with breaks samples offset against indecipherable robotic groans and melancholic chords, but a sudden change of drum pattern shows this is more than a reprieve of known territory – it’s a voyage away from the limits of tempo and genre.
This theme is explored throughout the EP by way of unnerving stripped back techno 'Akureyri', electro with subtle inflections of dancehall 'Comatack' and even a big beat/dub influenced jam 'Music for Advertising'. Simply put, this is music for those who hate to be labelled.

Could it be that this guy is the momentary hottest thing? This balance between classic rave and modernist minimality just kicks butts in circles. TRIP is the label of the hour, Bjarki a welcome surprise and label boss Nina the long awaited visionary behind it. Totally impressive listener. teejay1974
