Tevo Howard – Passion [ABTV009]

Abstract Theory is back with a new 12” release, from the great house producer Tevo Howard. “Passion”, is an audio depiction of the emotion, Passion, as considered from the mind of Tevo Howard who has said, ‘if Passion were a Chicago House track’. His take is also a prediction of human beings in the next 300-500 years: after the world learns to not do irrational WAR and not kill, Howard says: an era of some 300 years of compassion will begin, and will be followed by at least one thousand years of atonement in the existence of the passionate human being as an era of mankind. ‘Late Working Man’ as a B-side track is about being at the office late, and dancing very late at the disco.

Ben Sun On Delusions Of Grandeur. Kicking off the EP we have the title track Your Footprints setting the scene with Benʼs trademark raw hihats, bass and 909 kick. Next up Ben drops the BPMʼs a little for a lovely, loose, lo-slung number known as Affirmation. A snaking analogue bass line provides the hook and sets the scene whilst a layer of moody chords build around it underpinned by benʼs carefully crafted MPC beats and vocal FX. Finally we have the Chicago don Tevo Howard getting busy on his remix of Your Footprints.

Tevo Howard – What Is Sound? [PERMVAC099-1]

Munich’s excellent Permanent Vacations nudge towards a century of releases with a typically warm EP of huggable electronic grooves from the unpredictable Tevo Howard. Epic opener “Pump & Bounce” is the stand out cut. Built around a heady, intoxicating fusion of melancholic chords, tactile synths, stargazing melodies and seemingly cheap electronic sounds, it rises and falls for an impressive nine minutes. “You Have A Way With Words” spits and jumps with fuzzy machine rhythms and low-slung synths, while the hypnotic rhythms and crystalline arpeggios of “What Is Sound” are stunning in their emotion-rich simplicity.

The Parking Attendant – I’ve Heard It All Before [CR1260]

In a fit of tunnel vision Buckfast afficionado Marco Bernardi drives his hooptie off a cliff and slides underwater for a deep rolling mondo house trip that oozes sub bass and sneakiness in a weird paradox of uplift & despair, and doesn’t come up for air until Tevo Howard adds some sunday morning percussive tea-bag flavor to it. Meanwhile on the Ocean floor that absolutely venomous J.T.C. remix wipes out everything and anything it comes across.
