Proc Fiskal –
The Highland Mob.

Proc Fiskal is one of Hyperdub’s latest signings, making a melodic, dry and strange take on UK Funky and Bass.

First heard of him when he did a mix for Hypnoik earlier this year, blending old school hip-hop instrumentals with jungle.

The tracks (Lamentation being my favourite) are jittery and hard to follow, in a good way with broken beats, vocal samples, up-front square basses and electronic drum beats sounding like toys. The EP is a treat, shuffling between grime instrumentals and more pure house breakdowns and heavily rooted in synthetic sounds. Leaves me looking forward to this Edinburgh-based producer’s next effort.
