Tessela is the alias of 23 year old, West Country based Ed Russell. Debuting on Dublin’s ever impressive All City records in 2011 he has since released on 2nd Drop Records, Audio Culture and the Bristol institution that is Punch Drunk. His music is stripped back, percussive and echoes with the sounds of early UK Hardcore.
POLY KICKS is a new UK label run by Ed Russell AKA Tessela. First single is the much anticipated Hackney Parrot backed with Helter Skelter. Both tracks are rich with the sounds of early UK hardcore and show Tessela continuing on his breakneck rhythmic explorations. Expect rough percussive workouts and quality control of the highest order.
Support from Jackmaster, Loefah, Pangaea, Pearson Sound, Paul Wollford, Truss, Modeselektor, Addison Groove and more.
