Scarper lands on Plexus Records to release his new EP titled ‘E-Funk’.
Time to catch up with interesting London based producer Steve Young aka Scraper, an artist who have several releases and remixes under his belt and has built an impressive fan-base including the likes of legends Phil Hartnoll (Orbital), Laurent Garnier and Marcel Dettmann to name just a few.
He first came onto the scene when his moody electro-tech track ‘Hydromancer’ was picked up by respected Italo label, N.O.I.A. Records, but a long-time ambition to start his own label came to fruition in 2012 when he set up Plexus Records with friend and fellow artist Lawrence Pearce. His debut album, ‘Warmer Squares’ was released in 2017 to a warm and positive reception, winning over fans worldwide and support from the likes of Nemone on her BBC 6 Music show. Across the 11 tracks, Scarper explored a range of styles including ambient, techno, breakbeat, rave and downtempo beats, all with a strong emphasis on melody.
Now, Scarper lands on Plexus Records to release his new 2-track EP titled \’E-Funk\’, where he presents a couple of dance floor-ready original cuts.
First track is ‘E-Funk’, with this track he really does what it says on the tin, and in classic Scarper fashion mixes the old (skool) with the new in his own distinctly melodic style. A festival ready banger.
To close the release is ‘Rhodopsin’, a more straightforward techno track, but still with the same atmospherics, melancholic flourishes and cheeky melodies that we\’ve come to expect from this talented producer.
Plexus Records will release \’E-Funk EP\’ on August 17, 2020.
