Blunt Trauma
Blunt Instrument - Lone Town (Original Mix) [Simplify]
Blunt Instrument - 99.1 (Original Mix) [Simplify]
Blunt Instrument - The Pocket (Original Mix) [Simplify]

Ready for some bass to your face? I’ve been rocking out recently to a new EP called The Pocket by a UK duo called Blunt Instrument. Comprised of Luke Latimer and Rocco Mico from Wales, the duo is quickly earning the respect of the glitch hop community. There’s definitely a “future funk groove” to this release with tracks like Lone Town, which reminds me a bit of Funk Blaster by KOAN Sound.

While listening to The Pocket, I’ve really come to appreciate the level of effort and depth that went into its production. For example, 99.1 wields some well-refined basslines and makes excellent use of its sound space. Continuing, the EP’s title track packs a mean punch with every beat. Digging these tunes? Be sure to show them some <3 on their Facebook page!
