When Sebastian Döring releases a track, drop what you’re doing and head to a well-ventilated area because the spirit is about to get her hooks in you.

This month Döring returns to Peppermint Jam – scene of the crime for his 2017 pyrotechnic “Closer To You” with Mousse T. – for New Shit Has Come To Light. The relevance to The Big Lebowski is unclear – maybe it’s what Döring said to Mousse T. when he blew a deadline and lost his studio time to a bunch of nihilists. These three tracks are funky as fuck, “Glove” a slow-moving tornado of horns and FX and lost voices buried in the mix. “Da Sixty” belongs to a genre that exists only in my head – it’s one of those buzzy, groovy tracks that make me think of Gene Farris, Diz and Red Dog in the fallow hours after midnight:

The three tracks on New Shit Has Come To Light are available now on Traxsource and if you make a full EP buy today this should probably be it.
