Timedance label boss Batu's next record will arrive on XL Recordings

Bristol-based producer Batu has signed to XL for his next 12", Rebuilt. Above, you can hear the speedy lead track 'Flash React'.

The producer, real name Omar McCutcheon, says: "I wanted to try and challenge myself a bit for this EP. Every track represents a different phase of experimentation - and also different tempos. I wanted to push my processes further than I ever have done."

The four-track EP is the producer's first release since his Marius 12" for Hessle Audio last year. His label, Timedance, will also release a new various artists compilation later this month called Patina Echoes featuring contributions from label regulars such as Bruce and Ploy, as well as new faces to the label like rRoxymore and Simo Cell.

XL will release Rebuilt on June 1.
