Stones Taro – Rabbits [YAM Records]


“They have a nice way of using breaks,” my friend Jesse said. An undersell of an introduction to say the least for Kyoto based production madhouse Stones Taro. With a sound defined by refined jubilance Stones Taro have consistently been delivering uptempo bass workouts, unreserved breakbeat frenzy, and pleasantly unnerving grooves for years now. Following up standout releases on Bristol bass institution Scuffed Records, Stones Taro are back with a solid as a rock release on Body Action Music a.k.a. BAM.

This Body Action Music label is firmly on my radar to say the least. Launching last year with two absolutely beautiful tracks from Human Resources, B.A.M. has only continued to prove they’re worth with this latest release from Stones Taro. This latest EP is four expertly mixed tracks that seamlessly balance unnerving deepness and lived-in groove. Bolting Bits is happy to share “Rabbits” — a restless groove bass-driven journey that shows just how glossy the wormhole can be.
