Listen: Diger Rokwell - Seeds EP
Diger Rokwell’s Seeds EP is a four-track journey that proves electronic music can be organic too.
A three-time WAM award winning producer and a household name to many here in Perth, Ash Hosken AKA Diger Rokwell is – excuse the cliché - an inspiring artist. His latest body of work, Seeds, is yet another experimentation in instrumentation and strays from his grounding in sampling towards a psych-twanged quasi-electronic effort that draws on several genres. It’s hard to pigeonhole Seeds though. It effortlessly flows from one track to the next, but Rokwell’s experimentation makes each track feel like they could appear on separate releases. Be it the echoing vocals on My Heart or the driving bassline and synths on the EP’s title track, Diger Rokwell has managed to create something extremely unique in its diversity and continuity thanks to some omnipresent guitar riffs drenched in reverb, the driving motif in all tracks.
Mastered by Dave Cooley who’s engineered the likes of Madvillain and J Dilla, it’s hard to find anything wrong with Seeds. This EP is tight on all fronts and the handful of plays it’s had in my headphones already is making me want to buy that limited 10” dropping alongside its digital counterpart really bad. Stream Seeds below, head to Diger's BANDCAMP to grab the rest of the EP for the ridiculous price of $4 (or the $10 vinyl option), and see him recreate it live at the EP launch, THIS FRIDAY at The Bird.
