Julio Bashmore makes his Classic debut with ‘Sprungboard’. Raised on the bass-heavy frequencies of Bristol, UK, various labels and DJs have been supporters of his output since his self-titled 2009 EP on Claude Von Stroke's Dirtybird, while his releases such as ‘Au Seve’ and ‘Battle For Middle You’ have proven to be popular. After taking a musical hiatus following his 2015 LP ‘Knockin’ Boots’, he then re-emerged with ‘Bubblin’ on Local Action in 2023.
For his latest release on Luke Solomon’s London imprint, he selects percussive elements that tease rhythmic play before noise manipulation comes to the fore to reveal its groove.
Julio Bashmore: “This track slaps in the club, it’s been in the back pocket of DJs such as the great Honey Dijon and Walworth darling Joy Orbison. I like it because it creeps up on people and drops without people really knowing it. I hope it serves you well.”
‘Sprungboard’ by Julio Bashmore is out 23 February on Classic Music Company.
