Debut release from Glasgow based Stevie Cox. We asked her to tell us about it – I have a love hate relationship with producing music and these three tracks all fell into the love pile. I scrap any ideas if I get stuck and it isn’t flowing even if i’m halfway through them, but these three all came out super naturally and easily. I made Slinky and Expansion in one sitting each after a really good Subculture night (at Glasgow’s Sub Club) when I was feeling inspired and very present. I played a lot of acid that night and when I sat down to write, the tracks ended up being acid too. Although everything I write seems to feature acid. It’s my favourite noise in the world, I love the squelch of it and it just makes a dancefloor pop off when played right. Expansion works perfectly as a transition tune from the warm up into peak time, my favourite time to play. Slinky is a bass heavy, heads-down wobbly number and both these tracks were inspired by endless b2bs with Domenic Cappello at the Sub Club. The Golden Ratio is a wee dnb collaboration with my really good friend Fossil Archive. I’ve taken Roberts approach of going with the flow when writing music and now don’t touch a tracks structure after I’ve completed it. His encouragement to carry on producing is one of the reasons why this EP exists, so I’m endlessly grateful to him and it means a lot to have him on my debut solo EP. Having seen other DJs play all three tracks out now has been really special and the reactions they got from the dance floor will stay with me forever. I hope you like them too :)
