BigLikeBaz bought us Ormond back in May 2017, a nostalgic, 90s vibe, 12 track LP, which unsurprisingly sold out, as did the repress. So, it is very much welcomed to see a return of the Bristol based producer with Openwaters.
Coming correct with the atmospheric ‘Beyond’ as a teaser for the EP, BigLikeBaz drops a slick and lazy head-nodder, showing clear variation in his skills and moving away from the boom bap influences on Ormond and delivering a nod to Belgian beat makers. ‘Beyond’ is a solid insight into what’s to come with the new project.
Expect hazy vibes throughout with this one, dropping this Friday 31st August.
