We are SO excited to finally share with you a very special track that we’ve been playing out for months on end called ’80’. The brand-new SUNN Recordings will see their first release on Monday, November 13th by a local Irish artist named Kubb_. We are very proud to premiere his upcoming release taken from his debut ‘1993’ EP, made up of 3 tracks which all showcase their own unique, captivating melodies.
Formed by hypnotizing rhythms, driving percussions, warping basslines, and classic 90s acid house documentary snippets for good measure; ’80’ takes its listeners on a transcending journey, with the final destination being electronica bliss. ’80’ is the first release from this young talent that boasts a fresh, exciting sound – and we are sure it won’t be the last. Anyone who is a fan of Bicep will definitely want to keep their eyes and ears open for Irish emerging talent, Kubb_.

“The EP was written and recorded over the last year between hostels in Germany, kitchens in Cork, buses and trains as well as my makeshift “studio” at home. On “1993” the title track of the EP my love of acid and piano house are clearly evident. It’s my attempt at melding the two genres whilst at the same putting a modern twist on it. “80” is one of the first ever songs I produced. It’s the heaviest track on the EP with some warped 303 lines, deep 909 kicks and some early 90s acid house documentary snippets for good measure. The b-side of the EP “Yerrr” started out as a quiet meditative “Eno-esque” ambient piece with no drums or percussion just pads and piano. The title of it started out as a joke as it was the most un “Yerrr” worthy track but I stuck with it as I thought it was funny. The version on the EP was about my fourth attempt at remixing my own track.” – Kubb_
