Bristol based DJ Polo has been at the forefront of underground UK club culture since his debut EP on Roska’s Kicks & Snares label. He has since released on a plethora of the UK’s most cutting edge labels including Hyperdub & Livity Sound, while championing his sound on London’s Rinse.FM and Bristol’s SWU.FM.
The project is essentially a homage to the genres that have inspired me in the past, fusing these with more recent influences to create a vision for my future.– DJ Polo
Polo returns to Club Djembe with a 5 track EP showcasing the unique strain of drum-focused dance music his name has become synonymous with. To get you in the mood for Summer, the UK Funky mainstay has also recruited, club legend Scratchclart and UK vocalist Ramzee. Inspired by the likes of funky house, gqom, afrobeats and amapiano, whilst paying homage to earlier influences of dubstep and grime, DJ Polo encapsulates elements from the sounds that make him who he is today on “Look Back to Move Forward.”
Already receiving spins from the likes of Jamz Supernova and Jeremiah Asiamah on the BBC, this instrumental and vocal adventure solidifies Polo as a mainstay in progressive UK Club music.
