Jon & Hugh - Another View
After kicking things off with Sean Thomas’ (Cop Envy) The Weigh, Sydney’s Outer Time Inner Space return with a collaborative EP from Jon Watts, the kind-hearted, go-to sound engineer of the Sydney club and experimental music scene and OTIS label owner, Hugh Burridge (AKA Hubert Clarke Jr). As resident DJs for OTIS’ Sweet Echoes parties and guests for some of Sydney’s more open-minded club promoters, Jon & Hugh have developed their own style of warm up set, largely unrestrained by genre. Another View is just an extension of this open approach to club music. There’s an obvious ode to Bukem’s Good Looking Records, a lopsided MPC jam that could have been written by a drunk Ron Trent, a club roller with UK broken beat at it’s heart and a spaced out, dream-scape dub from Melbourne mate, Rings Around Saturn (Dan White) to round out the EP. The common thread, they’re keeping it deep.
