Dan Piu – Let’s Come Together [EPHCS002]

DAN PIU - Let's Come Together

OPIA sublabel Euphoric State welcomes the warm and analogue sounds of evergreen producer, Dan Piu. The Swiss producer is known for propelling vital, and ahead of their time sounds since the early 90’s. The ‘Let’s Come Together’ EP makes no exception as Piu showcases some of his catalogue ranging from 1994 -2020. The aptly named ‘Bleepy at 5AM kicks off the EP, an early morning energiser with a spring in it’s step. Followed by and crafted in ‘94 is ‘El Viento De La Noche’, four and a half minutes of pure emotive bliss, a raw house vibe from the golden era. B1 ‘Angry Giant Machine’ glides you through its twists and turns, a glitchy and playful number ready to make you move. ‘Mimic Human Form’ is a cross between modern Italo and mysterious electro, a curious outing with its low swung bassline, and swirling synths. Out of ‘99, and still sounding fresh is ‘Q.H.’, a straight up hip-hop energy, with dusty broken drums and rap samples. A fitting ending to a spectrum of sounds.

Virgo Four – Do You Know Who You Are? [TX175RED]

Every home should have this record from the 2 of the originators of deep House.  “Do You Know Who You Are?” EP from 1989 is as flawless as it gets, often imitated over the years but never, ever bettered. Every single track on this slab of wax is a classic. Virgo manage to reach right inside & take us somewhere on every cut while maintaining an otherworldly sense of melody & rhythm, some of the playing on this record is incredible & so accomplished, “In A Vision” for example still sounds like it’s beaming right at us from the future while “Take Me Higher” carries it’s stately, Reggae-like vibe along smoothly while retaining enough bounce to keep the floor locked in.

Wolfey – Powell St. Blues [EVR034]

Appearing on Echovolt for the very first time, Vancouver-based producer Wolfey offers up a four-track excursion that draws direct inspiration from the often-rainy climate of his sleepy home city. “Powell St. Blues” E.P. is a dance record of rare emotional depth that sees the Canadian bring out an impressive amount of warmth and soul from the machines he uses to make music. Drawing inspiration from early house and techno producers out of Chicago, NY and Detroit, Wolfey likes to work with a small selection of synthesizers, drum machines and outboard effects processors – only using the computer to record, edit and mix-down long multi-track takes and improvised jams. The resultant tracks bristle with vivid detail and texture while evoking distinctly hypnotic and alluring atmospheres.

FILIPP – Miletus EP [GEODESIC002]

FILIPP (co-founder of kosmogonik) appers on the Geodesic series with his epic EP “Miletus”. Miletus, the ancient city of Ionia, was FILIPP’s source of inspiration for this musical épos. Having been the place of birth for 3 great thinkers of the Presocratic era (Thales, Anaximenes & Anaximander), Miletus symbolizes both the origin of thought & the birth of the universe. The Milesians placed great importance on natural elements like water, fire or air in their cosmogonies, elements that were depicted very well in FILIPP’s choice of sounds on this release.

Subfunk / Mac & Rudedog – Untitled [MC039]

A fine slice of deep tech-house runnings from the turn of the millennium, Subfunk & Mac & Rudedog’s ‘Untitled’ EP is a thing of intensity! 4 cuts of that wiry machine funk that sounds like it dropped out of the sky only yesterday. It’s all here, for your ears, tripped out minimalism, dubbed out drum programming, lithe chord patterns and basslines to die for. There was certainly something in the water back then, records like this capture the era perfectly and that’s why they are so sought after. A rare record, the ‘Untitled’ EP manages to bridge the eras, and will undoubtedly find a place along your favorite UR / Motor-city records, they’re all forging out the same sonic territory.

Fred P – Construction EP [STR004]

Rekids offshoot Stranger in The Night welcomes underground mainstay Fred P for a release complete with his signature depth. ‘Turn Up’ is built on immovable kick drums that roll and roll beneath a dark nebula of synths and pads. There is the atmospheric feel of factory floor automation in the groove and it never lets up. The lush ‘Alphabet City’ is less heavy, with more bright and cosmic pads lighting up a track that is airy and filled with a subtle sense of funk. ‘Construction’ takes things late into the night once more, with an edgy lead that is unsettling and paranoid as it pans about over a rooted kick drum that will lock the floor into a state of hypnosis. ‘For The Dome’ closes this fantastically compelling release with jittery, percussive drums that are softened by celestial synth work. In harmony, they make for perfectly escapist listening.
