Pev & Asusu / Pev & Kowton, MMM & Pangaea Remixes

For the first in a series of Livity Sound remix 12″s, the pairing of MMM and Pangaea makes good sense, due to their shared affinity for body-block sonic warmth and efficiency.

Pangaea, Release

Pangea’s double EP, Release, is a record that contains a strong selection of darkly seductive night music — low key and built to last.

LWE Interviews Pangaea

Little White Earbuds caught up with Pangaea to talk about the early days of Hessle Audio, the perils of “listener fatigue,” and why techno may well be the way forward.

Pangaea, Inna Daze/Won’t Hurt

Hessle Audio kicked off this year in fine form with Inna Daze/Won’t Hurt, a sterling 12″ from label mainstay, Pangaea.

Pangaea, Pangaea EP

One could argue that dubstep traditionally thrives on massiveness: those seemingly infinite bass lines wobbling up from the deep like tsunamis, those scythe-like snares ripping the fabric of the track at each half-step. But in the years since Skull Disco cut its singular path out of wamp-wamp-stomp, producers have become far more willing to manipulate eardrums on a much finer scale. The world’s subwoofers may continue to suffer abuse, but their previously bored tweeter brothers and sisters have found their work on weekend evenings getting a bit more technical. Kevin McAuley, the young Leeds-based producer, DJ, and Hessle Audio co-founder better known as Pangaea, comes from this school of bass music thought, and his soul-soaked singles for Hessle Audio, Hotflush, and — perhaps most memorably — his as-of-this-writing one-off Memories white label have tweezed ecstasy out of a more whispery sound pallet. His burgeoning discography, however, has yet to feature anything as distinctive and defining as what’s on offer over the four sides of his self-titled Hessle Audio doublepack.
