Strict Face will debut four new tracks on NLV Records later this month.
The Adelaide-based producer, who released his nine-track, debut mixtape via Local Action Records in 2018, presents a club-orientated EP in the form of 'Urgency'.
Introducing his 'CLB/Hide The Gold' EP last month, 'Urgency' follows the driving dancefloor thematics of the two-tracker, showcasing a fast-paced and club-driven side to the producer's productions. "The tracks on Urgency stem from output I’d written in the wake of recovering from a creative block I’d suffered after releasing my New Racer mixtape last November,” he explains. "I hadn’t written music without having a grand plan for it in quite a while - almost every release I’ddone before then had a pre-meditated M.O. - so it was a nice change of pace to just write music that I could simply play out in the club".
The EP's second track, 'Intraheat', sees Strict Face weave a catchy flute sample through skittered, dancehall-inspired rhythms, providing a fresh take on percussion-heavy club sounds.
