Batu - Zoo Hypothesis
About Zoo Hypothesis
I was thinking about circadian rhythms and trying to convey them with music when writing this track. I wanted to kind of make a feeling of slow waves of rhythms, more pulsations than something defined I suppose. The moment of catharsis and release is the moment of death, what is happening next can be interpreted in different ways, I’ll leave that to the listener...
Timedance owner, Batu has carved out a unique sound in a shockingly short space of time since his debut with Pinch’s Cold Recordings in 2013. Subsequent 12″s for Hotline, Pev & Kowton’s Dnuos Ytivil in 2013 and Beneath’s Mistry have found him grounded in Bristolian bassbin principles yet pushing that prism in wild, crooked new ways that have become something of a signature aesthetic.
At the front of the dance, Batu and his tight-knit Timedance label are British bass music’s current muse. Leading the label, Batu was showered with praise in 2016 – voted 12th in Mixmag’s Breakthrough DJs of 2016, and his killer track Reez featured in Fact’s Best house and techno of 2016, while the label saw similar love across the board from RA, Mixmag, Fact and The Quietus, who proclaimed ‘2016 was Timedance’s year’.
