We've been in love with Ash's music since day one whilst he's been quietly killing it in the underground. Coming in with heavy dub pedigree Ash's sound taps the veins of Soul, Jazz and Funk, fusing them into a suspicious Trip Hop tapestry. Both tracks feature the killer horn work of Yazz Ahmed, one of the freshest artists to rupture the Jazz world with her psychedelic arabic rhythms. And RUDEGURL visuals come courtesy of Sophie Bass, the dopest illustrator in the UK right now.

An opiate laden dancefloor stomper. Big Fishtank Funk.
"Bagger was originally made at my old studio in crouch end, and was inspired by the greek/turkish food i was eating at the time in the area.... I played it with Charlie at home, decided that it would sound great with Yazz on, and pulled the trigger.... the Bagger was born".
