Moist Briefs is a New York-based producer, DJ, singer-songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist. Having played at some of the city’s most respected nightclubs and radio shows, such as The Lot Radio, Mood Ring, Rash, Jupiter Disco, and Half Moon BK, as well as releasing a well-received string of self-released singles and EPs, Moist Briefs now arrives on toucan sounds with the wonderfully varied ‘Orbiter’ EP.
Leading the release, ‘Low Key’ brings rattling drums and off-kilter sampling together for a high-octane start to the release. ‘Last Min Check In’ keeps the energy levels high with pounding house rhythms and chopped samples before ‘Just Blaze’ brings a flurry of breakbeats and lush pads. ‘Death From Above’ sees Moist Briefs go for the jugular, with booming subs, fast 4/4 kicks, and rave stabs taking centre stage. ‘Earidescent’ follows, a hazy deep house jam with gorgeous chords, vocal snippets shuffling percussion, which also receives the vocal treatment from toucan sounds’ family Brandon Markell Holmes as the final track on the release.
