One half of Critical Cuts and a regular at Riddim Fruit nights in Exeter, James Stafford aka. Dephicit's been plugging glitch in the South West like a trooper for years. This debut EP for Adapted Records sees him really come into his own as a producer though, with plenty of crisp licks and skanks filling the fresh space that he's opened up around his trademark deep funk wobble. It all layers together beautifully building into an irresistible rolling bounce in Gutter Fruit, while the Kry Talk remix is just pure, sweet ear nectar. Mouldy Soul's remix takes a light touch that really compliment's the original track, whereas Mustard Tiger pumps the funk by introducing slap bass into the mix (of course). The cover art (a digital mushroom garden spacescape) by Point Zero One Productions is as gorgeous as the music. Essential release!
