Worthy – Flashin EP
Autumn has arrived, and so has a finely crafted EP from one of Dirtybird‘s most decorated veterans. After braving a busy summer tour circuit that found him performing everywhere from Lightning in a Bottle to Sankeys Ibiza, Worthy finally made it back to his studio to ready some battle-tested tunes for release on his Anabatic Records imprint. “Flashin” is the sort of sub bumping single that would make Claude proud, prominently exhibiting the low end leverage of the 808 against a backdrop of vintage synth stabs and delayed vocal snippets. Meanwhile, “Trinidad” represents a musical melting pot simmering at the intersection of lighthearted Caribbean calypso, dirty dub vocals and the San Franciscan’s signature funk bass. The result is an EP that cheerfully explores new sonic territory while upholding the bass-heavy values that have helped Worthy live up to his name.
