Chuurch have today released their 4-track EP, Uunion, via Skrillex’s free-release imprint NEST. The Canadian-based production duo has developed one of the most unique and immediately-recognizable sounds in dance music of late, a remarkable quality for such a brand new, emerging act. Previously released singles include One Mind and Erase The Pain feat. Blak Trash and today Chuurch has revealed the entire Uunion EP and it certainly does not disappoint.
Kicking off the EP with the Rough It, Chuurch ropes in listeners with the aggressively deliberate synth pattern that sets the pace for the rest of the EP. Chuurch infuse elements of hip-hop, acid house, and various other electronic genres into a uniquely coherent 4 track EP, ripe with vocal samples and basslines that will have listeners clamoring for more.
Chuurch’s music is best experienced in a live setting, as they only play their own productions in their live sets, a bold move that not a lot of DJs are taking in 2018. Chuurch’s visual image is dark and gritty, a reflection of the music – and further differentiating themselves from the bright and colorful aesthetic of EDM.
“This EP is a step outside the usual comfort zone of dance, we want people to embrace the dark side on this one,” – says Chuurch about the EP
