Essex duo Ghetto Mullet are just about to release their first EP ‘Sunday Morning Hangover’ on a small independent label called Big Teeth. An electronica outfit formed from the discontentment of run-of-the-mill sounds of today’s ‘tinned music’ culture, their influences draw from eighties to mid-nineties hip-hop though Ghetto Mullet have veered off at a tangent into the obscurity of something more glitchy and experimental.
‘Sunday Morning Hangover’ was produced virtually, in that the two artists didn’t work in each other’s presence to produce the EP but collaborated instead via email and Skype, sending files and sharing ideas to create the EP. This way of producing music was totally unnecessary since the artists live very close to each, but perhaps this anti-logic helps us to understand something of Ghetto Mullet.
‘Sunday Morning Hangover’ drops on 3 November 2008.
