Batu

It wasn't long into his career that Bristol-based DJ and producer Omar McCutcheon, aka Batu, began to send shockwaves through the club scene. His unique combination of forward-thinking sonic experimentation and soundsystem-ready, bass-heavy beats set him apart from many of his peers, and his work curating releases on his own tight-knit Timedance imprint has only bolstered his appeal. This year he dropped his long-awaited debut album "Opal", following acclaimed releases on Hessle Audio, XL and Livity Sound with a widescreen selection of emotional textures and microscopically tweaked leftfield club rhythms. McCutcheon brings this same energy into his DJ sets, scraping modernist sounds from fringe dance scenes across the globe, absorbing them into his loose-limbed flow.
