It is probably not widely known, but Paul Bradley is one funny fucker. It is rare for me to meet someone who makes me laugh, and Paul does so on a regular basis. This is not a good reason to release anyones music, but it is the icing on the cake when it comes to Pauls work. A thread of ridiculous humour runs through most of his tracks, and he seems to take a real pleasure in throwing in the most bizarre samples and ideas in the middle of what might otherwise be an (almost) normal EP. Quite aside from that, Paul has quickly become a close confidant within the label, often helping out with artwork for KF Digital, and generally being an all round good egg.
I was a bit miffed that his first EP did not sell billions, honestly. Maybe it was that his tracks appear too normal at first glance. I assure you, they are not. Paul is deceptively weird, and he makes deceptive hardcore, in that it can seem almost obvious, but it is in fact incredibly clever. And probably a little sarcastic too.
Maybe its because he uses his real name – Paul Bradley. Its a bit normal, isnt it? Which doesnt suit him at all. I think he should have kept his original moniker which was the much more amusing “Captain Triceps”, but I understand outgrowing a name (suck it, Eko).
So I thought “Right! We will give his new EP a proper good sleeve, and then maybe people will take more notice!”
And here it is. So take notice!
This EP is brilliant. I pushed “Bradders” to get out of his safety zone a little, and you can feel this EP is a huge step up from his last one, both in content and execution, plus it has more variety. It does, of course, still have its daft moments, and those just elevate it to a whole ‘nother level in my humble opinion.
This EP is blinding, and if you miss it, then you are ‘kin daft mate.
