Simoncino – For My Father EP [CR1270]

Simoncino makes his debut on Creme Organization with five suitably esoteric house offerings. Two of the inclusions, Interval I and Interval II, are serene ambient pieces that showcase this Italians serious synth-scaping skills, whilst the other three are gorgeously romantic and nostalgic house tracks made for the more sensitive dancefloors out there. Tape 1 is the meanest, with a growling bassline and splashes of loose-limbed percussion, where Tape II is much more uplifting owing to the celestial patterns that twinkle above muggy and muddled Chicago drums. Tape III is downbeat and melancholic thanks to the subdued, rubbery bassline, but more golden pads light up the thing with plenty of very real, cautiously optimistic emotions. This is house music to take you to another world entirely, and it’s a fine place to be.

Raw M.T. – Raw Music Theory EP [WB012]

Our new release ”Raw Music Theory EP” is the debut for the young but very talented Italian producer Raw M.T. The opening tune, ”Walkman Is Dead” does, in fact, sound a bit like dismay over a broken piece of domestic electronics. As if the original wasn’t weird enough, it is backed with L.I.E.S’ very own Greg Beato’s remix that would easily make it into one of these fashionable screwed up mixes that everyone seems to enjoy so much these days. Keeping it so lo-fi it nearly crosses the line of DJ-unfriendliness, Greg stretches the original synths, delivering something on the unexpected-yet-welcome border of trance, speed garage and powerhouse. On the flip, a more laid-back and relaxed ”Sara”, possibly dedicated to a special one, takes us all the way back to the Drexciya times.
