PREMIERE | DJ Perception - Obsessed [Timehri Records]



"Timehri (tim-air-ree) – a Guyanese Amerindian word meaning petroglyph. Located deep in the Guyana hinterland and predating the arrival of Europeans by thousands of years, the Timehri have been used as a visual medium to communicate and symbolise cultural beliefs for millennia. West London DJ T Dunn pays homage to his Guyanese heritage, continuing this legacy as a cultural aesthetic through music, via an alternate reality sometime in the far future"


As a platform, Timehri launched late last year with a talk on the Windrush Generation and its impact on UK Music. Also an active panel host, T Dunn invited esteemed innovators DJ Ron, Tash LC and Heny G down for the launch at Next Door Records in Shepherd's Bush. Primarily a record label however, expect a carefully curated roster hand picked from a bubbling pool of underground dance music talent - the first release landing in late February courtesy of DJ Perception, his first full vinyl project since 2019.


Perception’s previous full EP came under his Moodswing alias, after his personal imprint. An independent label and South London hub central to underground UK Garage. Enter the Moodswing residence and you’re quickly wrapped up in generations of Black rooted culture, with music at the forefront. Expect Timehri to follow a similar suite, combined with its own unique narrative, sourced from the best underground creatives, showcased via their records, panels and events.


The 'Future Horizons EP' kicks things off with 'Know Your Name'. Skippy drum patterns set the tone throughout, providing the bass layer for the offbeat top end whilst the addition of a subtle sing-along vocal delivers the perfect balance - A head bobber for sure!


'Obsessed' is a bumpy 4/4 number in similar vein as the A side. This time using classic sampling to build a vibe alongside the shuffley garage house groove.


For 'Groove Me', Perception brings in guitarist Fitz for a collaboration of serious quality. Perception’s drums once again unique, fat and underpinning the true sense and feel of

underground UKG. Fitz layering it up with a guitar riff as hypnotising as the vocal tones in earlier tracks.
