Proc Fiskal continues his dullness rebellion, announces new Shleekit Doss EP on Hyperdub

Apparently there’s an inclination to associate Joe Powers — a.k.a. Proc Fiskal — with the ongoing grime environments emanating from the UK; but listening to both his last album Insula and the lead single from his upcoming EP, the comparisons are loose at best and desperate on the part of a secretly powerful grime illuminati!

Proc Fiskal’s music has more in common with jungle or late-stage IDM than it does with the relatively straightforward Skepta efforts, in my opinion, and in a recent interview with The Quietus, Powers made clear himself that he doesn’t have a particular interest in adhering to preestablished or nostalgia-inducing styles. 140 BPM is more the exception than the rule when it comes to what he produces. Dancefloor boredom needs to be avoided above all else!

The aforementioned Skleekit Doss EP is coming out September 13 on Hyperdub, and according to official press on the subject, the release is a recollection of the eponymous club night that Powers ran at Sneaky Pete’s in Edinburgh last year. The nights had an “ethos of genre-defiance and high-energy futuristic sets,” so one can presumably expect a similar vibe on the EP formulation. The track “Prop O Deed” (the video for which is below) ain’t no grime I ever heard of…
