Hex Cougar, Juelz unleash exhilarating new collaboration, ‘Ur Body’

“Ur Body” isn’t ready for this one. A new wave of UK garage has begun to take shape across the digital airwaves, led by a talented young brood of new producers. Among them are Sable Valley alums Hex Cougar and Juelz, who have released an exhilarating new garage-inflected, bass-heavy record, “Ur Body,” a modernizing take that pushes the sound in an interesting, innovative way. The atmospheric, texture-rich single released via Hex Cougar’s own Alter/Ego imprint is the pair’s first collaborative track out this year, and a unique amalgamation of several genres. On the new collaboration, Hex Cougar muses,

“Julian and I had been talking about writing music together for a while now, but for one reason or the other the ideas we’d sent back and forth just weren’t hitting the way we wanted. That is until a couple months ago, when I sent him a drop and lead idea for ‘Ur Body’—he added his own percussion and fleshed out the idea a bit more, and we immediately knew that this was the one,” Hex Cougar shared with Dancing Astronaut.

The Alter/Ego label, founded in fall of 2020, released its first compilation in November that same year. Since then, Hex Cougar’s rising imprint has seen several critically acclaimed releases and a collaborative EP, Genesis, alongside Pauline Herr, Sejo, and So Sus. Furthermore, the label’s team is already teasing another label compilation later this year. Stay tuned for more from Hex Cougar’s camp. For now, stream “Ur Body” below.
