The gritty UK outfit known as Clouds just released their latest offering, Sharp Like A Razor, a 4-track, high-speed maelstrom of sound. The second release on Headstrong, their co-owned imprint with frequent collaborator Randomer, this tetrad of productions combines dastardly drum sequences and formidable kicks into refined electronic expressions.
The hunt for the title track has been severe from frequenters of the World Wide Web ever since Randomer’s Boiler Room last summer, and is joined by 3 exceptional counterparts in “Another Day”, “Fantazia 2003” and “Arkhangelsk Nightmare”.
Clouds showcase their visceral club cracking edges by providing functional yet intriguing tunes to stimulate the dance.
The UK has a reputation for creating new genres, and Clouds tapped into that entrepreneurial spirit on “Sharp Like A Razor.” Elements of techno, leftfield, hardcore, jungle, garage and innumerable other sources of inspiration can be heard throughout, all with a certain flavor that Clouds have defined on their own. The pair recently ascribed to the philosophy of performing DJ sets comprised entirely of their original productions. This EP will have a welcome place in those sets.
The title track has been highly anticipated since Randomer played it during his Boiler Room set in the summer of 2018, and now “Sharp Like A Razor” is available to own!
