Returning artist Gramrcy is one of the Bristol artists who has garnered much attention ever since the release of his debut 12” Ruffian on Berceuse Heroique’s sister-label, Ancient Monarchy. Gramrcy’s style within the confines of this record hones in on nostalgic rave-inspired breaks, wailing synths, muddy, disjointed basslines and melodies that make you feel as if you are stuck in limbo with no idea how you got there. Gramrcy has become a cherished figure within Bristol’s electronic music scene and it is not hard to see why: an artist whose sound can be introspective, dark, and uncertain at times, breaking free of stylistic shackles, straddling a gloriously indefinable line. Deep Nalström, the alias of Bristol-based visual designer Guillaume de Ubéda, a longtime collaborator of the French duo Nummer, and their Natural Selections label. Having had a hand in designing the artwork for a wealth of releases on Nummer’s other label Nummer Music and Brian Not Brian’s Midnight Drive and Going Good, Deep Nalström also crafted the visual for Mårble’s inaugural release in 2018 and his own 2019 EP entitled “Naive Melodies”. A shimmering release, powerful, percussive, spiritual and metallic – Deep Nalström tops it with this brilliant EP. UK artist Daisy Moon co-runs Bristol/Berlin club night Housework with Shanti Celeste, Gramrcy and Golesworthy, and is also resident for Idle Hands affiliated label, BRSTL. Daisy Moon also helped set up the Mix Night sessions for Bristol Women In Music, a night that sets women up with the skills necessary to make the hugely important step into what is a very male-dominated sphere.
