Blawan – What You Do With What You Have
Blawan aka Jamie Roberts is a producer from Sheffield, UK. Last year he released a slew of dark, weird techno tracks, all of which were good. It’s hard to pick a favorite, but What You Do With What You Have is probably my go to track. It’s got a vocal hook that’ll keep non-dance music crowds on the floor and it’s not as atmospheric or IDM-y as some of his others, Shader or Iddy for instance.
The pitched-down witness protection program vocals recall Bam Bam’s Where’s Your Child. A slab of sickly acid goodness, it’s is the type of record that instantly sets the dance floor bouncing. Creepy and druggy, it’ll make you feel good and bad at the same time. You can almost smell angel dust in the air. This one turns any party into a badly lit 3am warehouse jump-off. remember, It ain’t what you do, it’s how you do it.
