HaHaHa - Adzuki Beans EP
It’s been a long time coming, but HaHaHa finally dropped his ‘Adzuki Beans EP’ today on the consistently fresh Tighten Up label. If you’ve been reading this blog for a while you’ll know how highly we rate this young producer, who apart from making searing beats on his laptop is also one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet. This year has been shaping up to be a big one for him with his Raksha collaborations proving to me immensely popular and of course his own material making fans out of the likes of Martyn, Carte Blanche & Sinden.
The Adzuki Beans EP is a flagship for a completely new sound in club music; in the past we’ve rather pointlessly labelled HaHaHa’s music as Submarine House or Jungle Rhythm, but really Frazer Graham is carving out a path for himself which is truly unique. Lead track Adzuki Beans is a frenetic mixture of techy basslines and staggered chords while Dadun Dadun sounds like peak time at a Mayan rave deep in the Mexican rainforest. Ultimately this is what innovation sounds like - we suggest you get familiar.
