Ploy is launching his own label, Deaf Test.

Taking its name from a club night that he launched in London earlier this year, the label, he said in a statement, is “a vehicle for my personal output now”. 

He continued: “I have more club-focussed music on the way, and I’ll be exploring meaningful collaborations too. The name is due to me being deaf in one ear from an early age.”

Deaf Test’s first release will be the three-track ‘Rayhana’ EP, which is due out on 19th November. You can listen to the title track below.

The EP follows on from releases for labels such as Hessle Audio and Timedance, as well as 2020 debut album ‘Unlit Signals’, which came out on L.I.E.S.

Following the release of ‘Rayhana’, Ploy will put on a second Deaf Test party, at London club Venue MOT Unit 18 on 4th December. The line-up will not be announced in advance.

Ploy previously contributed a track to Timedance’s 2020 compilation ‘Sharpen, Moving’, which marked the label’s fifth anniversary.
