NEWS: Guido Preps 'Anidea' Album for Punch Drunk

If you follow any of dubstep's 'super DJs' on twitter you'll have read two or three weeks ago about a forthcoming Guido album, something Punch Drunk label boss, Peverelist, has today confirmed. Called Anidea, the album follows two trail blazing 12 inches - 'Orchestral Lab' and 'Beautiful Complication' - for the label from the Bristol based producer who recently contributed remixes for Pinch, Lauren Pritchard and Wedge & Shadz on the If Symptoms Persist label.

Part of the Purple Trinity, a trio of incredibly brave and melodically inventive producers that includes Joker and Gemmy, Guido's will be the first album from the three artists to be released and it comes with no exaggeration to say that we are awesomely excited at the prospect and extremely proud to be able to bring you some advance previews of three album tracks.

Cue gumpf:

Guido cut his teeth in the embryonic mid-decade Bristol Grime scene, producing instrumentals for MCs and vocalists culminating in his ‘Unleashed’ mixtape in 2006. His production style shares the ultra vivid colour, melody and rugged texture of golden era Davinche, Skepta and Ruff Squad’s Rapid but also the playfulness and pop sensibility of Timbaland or Neptunes without losing underground edge or appeal...

The album will be preceded by a digital single, ‘Way U Make Me Feel’ featuring a vocal from Yolanda who has recently been touring with Massive Attack and who also featured on Pinch’s recent ‘Get Up’ 12” on Tectonic.
