Independent Artist Of The Week: Endgrain

February 27th 2017

Endgrain is the latest project from Sydney-based producer Jackson May. It’s a healthy dose of upbeat electronica and it’s guaranteed to make you move.

While his previous monikers drew inspiration from the likes of Bonobo and Quantic, Endgrain is more heavily influenced by UK club culture and house music. That said, both influences can still be heard in his current sound – the pace is more suited to dimly lit dance floors and the smooth percussion reveals his unique approach.

Endgrain is set to release his debut EP soon via local dance label, October Records. Ranging from laid-back jams to high intensity beats, our first taste comes in the form of his debut single, ‘4×4’. Almost seven minutes of organised chaos, it remains dynamic from start to finish. The persistent beat creates a sense of urgency while the sampled lyrics keep things cool.

You can catch him launching ‘4×4’ at the first ‘October Nights’ party at Civic Underground this Friday – more details below.

Not for the faint-hearted. You’ve been warned.
