"The Ndebele EP" (pronounced in-de-bele) is the brand-new EP from broken beat revivalist, producer & DJ - WheelUP aka West London's Danny Wheeler. Conceptually formed around his father's tribe in Zimbabwe, "The Ndebele EP" see's Danny sonically push the boundaries of broken beat, with four dancefloor tracks that effortlessly fuse in elements of nu-jazz, leftfield house/techno and echoes of disco-cuts.

Thumping EP opener "Ndebele" see's Danny pay homage to his heritage: "Ndebele people were the tribe of my father, originally from Zimbabwe, and part of the Zulu's. He explained to me, as I am the oldest son, I have a spiritual role to my extended family in the tribe." The cosmic-spacious ambience of "Life On Mars" is a tribute to Danny's friends in China who were starting to slowly re-open their clubs in April 2020 during the initial lifting of sanctions during the COVID-19 pandemic. While the syncopated rhythms in "People" is one for the bruk heads "it's more of a nod to the classic bruk from Plastic People times", Danny explains. The EP closes with "Girl" a relentlessly hypnotic-hook, embodying dark-dancefloor vibes for the end of the night.
