Over the last three years, London duo Ken Petalcorin and Andy Bowden, better known collectively as TIBASKO, have been creating heat with an appetite for their productions. With both Ken and Andy holding strong musical backgrounds and impressive global travels, TIBASKO have forged a unique sound that spans breakbeat, trance, melodic house and more rich techno sounds. Their first official release of the year is The One/Let Me Tell You EP which comes out by way of Three Six Zero Recordings.
The title track, “The One,” displays a minimalist production style with a simple yet bright rhythm that allows the euphoric vocals to shine through. On “Let Me Tell You,” the pair take a more eclectic and emotional approach that caters more to their lockdown listeners from the past year. Bold in structure and tone, these two offerings pose TIBASKO as one of the brightest purveyors of melodic electronica.
Here’s what they had to say about the inception of the songs:
“We’ve always looked to extend the frontiers of our music, especially when we envision how our music will be performed. We are introducing more live instruments such as the rich and intricate guitar solo from Ken, Balearic disjointed bells and warped vocals from fellow musician and good friend, Julia Church.”
