"The third release on the Murmur imprint supports another rising star from their UK base. Bearweasel have proved in their handful of productions to be one of the most refreshing production acts around. The Orpington EP further exposes their versatility, reaching into the depths of their influences and delivering two contemporary cuts paired with an inspired remix from Dubshape. The EP's opener 'Pillow Head' is a track as mellow and warm as its namesake, drenched in supple beats and tingling sound. 'Wander Down' steps up the game, weaving deep atmosphere through its layers of loops and grooves. The Dubshape remix adds menace to the track, laced with foghorns and rolling melodies, the results of each cut are diverse and uniquely appealing. Dubshape, aka Ale Reis and Joao Lee, are residents at the world's best nightspots, Warung and D-Edge in Sao Paulo, Brazil, a place where they gather influence from the surrounding burgeoning scene and have built a dynamic sound. Bearweasel are Dean Muhsin and Louisa Page, from the north and south of England respectively. A chance meeting in 2007 led to an understanding of a shared love of dub-infused house, intricate percussion and, strangely, wildfowl. Their tracks fuse deep house, jazz samples, live percussion and contemporary production to create quite individual sounds."
