Toasty – Metal




Since their last release (Plata?s ?Kru? EP CRWL001), London based Circadian Rhythms has evolved into a concept label – a collaboration between NTS radio grime favourites Last Japan & Blackwax, fashion designer William Green, artist Dylan Tushar and designer Jase Coop. The collective challenges our understanding of what makes a record label by exploring music through the creation of physical and non-physical objects. Each musical output is to have its own specific collection of clothing, alongside artwork, video and mini site. As a result it?s more than a record / clothing label, but a creative collective whose different interpretations of a single theme are executed under the same umbrella. The first artist to collaborate with the label in its new format is Toasty, who has been drawn out of his hiatus (amidst growing demand) with the brilliant ?Metal? EP. Often described as one of the most important producers of the Dubstep era, Toasty?s warped basslines, breaks and hard hitting snares predicted a lot of music to come. With past releases on Scuba?s Hotflush – amongst many others, this is a welcomed return from the mysterious and celebrated producer.
