Bearcubs is the immersive solo project from 25 year old electronic artist Jack Ritchie. Over the past two years, Bearcubs has honed in on a distinct blend of emotive electronic music, future garage and lo-fi house music in his meticulously crafted productions. Bearcubs debut EP Chroma saw him heavily championed by the likes of Annie Mac on BBC Radio 1.

Bearcubs follow-up EP Underwaterfall was praised by Pigeons&Planes as “an electronic score in search of the perfect film”. The four track collection showcases the diversity of Bearcubs’ sound, from melancholic, introspective gems to intelligent, club-ready cuts. We can’t wait for Bearcubs to bring his enchanting sound to Body&Soul this June.
