“ I started working on this track around the same time I was working on ‘Spanner’ and was touring America at the time, staying in Texas with my US booking agent Balash. It was always a track I wasn't too sure where to take or what to do with it, it felt like it needed more. So I shared this with one of my inspirations in bass music, the legend Doctor P and he was keen to jump on it and I knew this is what it had been waiting for!

Imposter Syndrome will mark Hydraulix’s most complete, introspective, and personal body of work to date. The full LP will feature 20 tracks and a myriad of diverse collaborations that underline his ever-evolving sonic profile. Imposter Syndrome is slated for release on September 10 via Liquid Stranger’s coveted label, WAKAAN.
