Gun Aid: Time At The Vortex EP
The Gun Well St
Catalogue Number
Release Date
March 12, 2021


The Time At The Vortex EP has spawned from Gun Aid, a compilation album put together by beloved east London boozer The Gun. This record fronts a quartet of the most dancefloor-friendly jams from Gun Aid, with Daniel Avery, Scott Fraser, Cherrystones and GLOK the four artists involved. As is the case with Gun Aid, proceeds from Time At The Vortex will go to Hackney young persons’ charity Hackney Quest.

In aesthetic terms, Time At The Vortex is a record which splits neatly down the middle. A-side offerings from Avery and Fraser are both halcyon-glow techno jams, though within this framework the two artists take things in different directions - Avery’s ‘The Sovereignty Centre’ is a broken-beat number full of stargazing, Detroit-tinged synth pads while Fraser locks into more of a Sheffield bleep sound for ‘Out Of The Area (Late Nite Dub)’.

Things get decidedly more scuzzy when you flip Time At The Vortex over. The track titles here - ‘Hippies Wearing Muzzles’ and ‘Tories In Jail’ from Cherrystones and GLOK respectively - intimate that things might be about to get murky, and both tunes deliver on their promises with some low-slung industrial techno beats.

With a portion of the proceeds going to the Hackney Quest charity The Gun pub’s Time At The Vortex EP is a set of great beats for a great cause.
