Suddenly from the shadows, an imposing figure appears. Nuphlo, a longtime journeyman from Leeds steps to the fore with an EP uncovering immense depth, skill and talent. Uniquely fusing dubby halftime and breakbeat jungle elements, his style reflects his 90's Asian underground music influences.

The title track sets the tone with expertly cut breakbeat work and a bass just gnarly enough to find a home on Machinist. Warm musical flourishes throughout make the track equally suited to the club and the livestream; early evening or last track of the night.

A haunting flute hook draws you deeper and deeper through a breakbeat-sprinkled halftime affair entitled “Terminals.” A filtered amen break at the second drop lets you know Nuphlo doesn’t play around.

Dubby bass and catchy musical elements showcase Nuphlo’s singular style on “Archangel.” The carefully layered breakbeat work demonstrates mastery of the craft rarely found in 2021. His signature employment of this mastery hints at why Bobby Friction (BBC radio 1) remarked “I'm convinced he leans towards the box marked 'genius.'”

We find ourselves even deeper down the rabbit hole with the final track “Force Field”. Infectious riff and more tasty breakbeat elements ride atop a cloud of heavy sub bass. The track is the final exhibit in a case of dnb excellence.
