The second release on Pink Lizard Music’s club imprint pxnklxzrd, Fucu‘s ‘Rocker’ comes with absolutely zero information about the artist.
A dub-influenced shuffler picked up early by DJ Barely Legal for her BBC 1Xtra mixes, ‘Rocker’ waits until the two-minute point to drop an erhu sample that takes it into a completely different dancefloor space.
The remix from 6Music mainstay Spatial Awareness notches up the Detroit techno influences. An immediate favourite for Capital XTRA‘s Coco Cole, it’s the latest in a line of recent work that’s received plaudits from Skream, diskJokke and Danny Daze.
Rounding out the package is label boss Benbo, whose ‘Minimal Shuffle Remix’ works elements of the original into a mesmeric house groove for the deepest of the small hours.
