Bleep Bloop has just revealed the title track off his upcoming EP The Fifth Pupil EP, out October 13 on DJ Shadow’s Liquid Amber label. A wonky industrial bass track, “The Fifth Pupil” takes you on a sonic, weird and eerie listening adventure. It’s the first release off the upcoming four-track EP, which arrives in conjunction with his biggest North American tour to date.

A throwback to the classic leftfield music from revered labels like Warp, Planet Mu and Ninja Tune, but with a modern twist, the EP ignites with with the gloomy title track which sounds like a blast of machine gun bass and percussion to the body; relentless to the end. “Angry” highlights Bleep Bloop’s diverse musical palette with a classic jazz percussion structure that feeds rubbery basslines into snare rolls. “Man and Machine” is proper drill n bass, the soundtrack to an automated world where machine-lead processing overtakes the human touch. The “EP” closes out with “Angry (Paint Remix),” an alternate, more aggressive take on the original.

In addition to supporting Rezz and Zeds Dead on their upcoming tour dates, Bleep Bloop is on his own headlining “The Fifth Pupil” North American tour through December.
