Broken Deck is the project of East London electronic producer Michael Wright. Emerging with his debut EP 'Finisher' on Proclectic Records at the beginning of 2015, Broken Deck has quickly resurfaced with 'Helter', his 2nd EP of the year and his first on Seattle-based label Hush Hush. 'Helter' continues to showcase his rich, masterful style that confidently fuses textured ambience, punchy rhythms, haunting melodies, rumbling low end, and shadowy vocal samples.
A diverse and distinctive UK streak runs throughout the EP’s four tracks, each song morphing into its own world while flickering shades of influential artists such as Burial, Andy Stott, and Actress. “Outmodeled” and “Total Return” explore Broken Deck’s more introspective side, focusing on spacious beats and arresting atmospherics while the upfront rhythms of “Voxer” and “Endless” contain a leftfield pulse primed for adventurous clubs. Fitting perfectly into the nocturnal-leaning catalogue of Seattle’s Hush Hush Records, 'Helter' is another impressive early step in Broken Deck’s budding discography.
