Ploy draws on sound system culture for new EP, Unit 18





“Made for various times of the early hours…”

DJ and producer Ploy is releasing a new EP, called Unit 18, via his own Deaf Test label this July.

Taking influence from sound system culture, the three track EP touches on elements of drill bass lines, UK bass music, electro, dubstep, and rave.

“Imagine the scene: whilst a deranged, malfunctioning robot MC yaps and undulates, vampires chase their victim through a packed rave, before feasting on flesh.”

The EP is dedicated to Ploy’s label and club night Deaf Test’s spiritual home, London’s Venuet MOT Unit 18.

It follows his Rayhana EP — one of our favourite records from 2021.
