Baconhead make sci-fi beats to confuse your brain and their newly released 'Astro Sludge EP' perfectly describes this 12” debut by the UK based duo. After their very well received 'Soap EP' (getting support from Slugabed, Si Begg and Kid 606) they've teamed up with eclectic Dutch label Eat Concrete for a series of releases showcasing their sonic agenda.
Inspired heavily by psychedelia, videogames and experimental hiphop, Baconhead have crafted an EP that offers a wealth of ideas and styles, using funk, sludge-rock and dubstep as main ingredients. Thankfully their attempt easily transcends any of these genres and manages to be refreshing and original at every beat. The 'Astro Sludge EP' (featuring the ever inspiring 'Mindbender') combines meticulous production with a healthy dose of humor, resulting in a highly addictive set of music that certainly leaves you wanting for more.
Packaged in ultra sexy artwork, mastering done by label founder Pete Concrete. First in a series!
