|Davide Piras is an Italian producer with a penchant for the tougher, rougher side of British bass music. Creating music under the moniker DJ Chupacabra, Piras has been picked up by labels like Haws and Dr Banana in the past year, and now makes his debut for Time Is Now with more deep raw cuts.
The EP hits hard with deep tech, breaks and rumbling bass. “Grimer” kicks off with sparse, staccato beats for heads down business before the expansive two step of “Rockstar”. With its eclectic use of samples and ominous swelling bassline, it’s a solid club roller.
Funky, earworming house is the game of B-side opener “Killalot” which hints just a little of an acidic edge. “Morbid” is a heady stepper with plenty of ear teasing melody and atmosphere. The EP closes with a crescendo in “Croissant”, which has a chunky minimal deep tech beat and booming bassline which is destined to send the dancefloor wild.
