Staunchy in Here, No?
Staunch - Fresh Intensions (Original Mix)
Staunch - Busted Up (Original Mix)
Staunch - Sensitive New Age Gringo (Original Mix)

Meet Staunch, a duo out of Australia whose funky midtempo breaks are quickly stepping into the forefront of modern bass music. The young duo recently released their first EP on Bandcamp for free download, giving us three massive tracks that quickly prove Staunch’s funky glitch sound is not just eclectic, but according to recent trends, is most definitely here to stay.

The release’s shining track for me was Fresh Intensions, a sophisticated glitch hop song that focuses as much energy on creating a substantial atmosphere as it does on its wowing basslines, and the result is a track that really speaks to the listener. The other two tracks, Busted Up and Sensitive New Age Gringo, both sound a bit like KOAN Sound tracks in the best way possible–sophisticated, bassy, and inspiring of wonky dances.
