The much talked about Love Fever label is back with a hot new EP, this time from Absolute with remixes from Willian Djoko. It follows big records from the likes of Citizen, John Daley and Bicep and is another essential outing from this top label.
Absolute kicks things off with ‘Mind Control’, a moody house cut with spangled basslines gurgling about above slick rubber drums. Some mind melting melodies ripple over the face of the track and freaky vocals add lots of late night weirdness that help this one stand right out. A ‘mixed stems’ version of the same tune is a little roe sparse and eerie, with a big breakdown sucking you deep into the midst of this fresh groove.
The excellent ‘Acid’ is next and for two minutes teases with no drums and just writhing synth lines, then the drums drop and they are big powerful things that come with rasping stabs and huge hi hats. It’s festival sized house music with some futuristic and trancey chords and is a truly original jam.
Man of the moment and Amsterdam producer William Djoko—fresh off some big tunes on labels like Seth Troxler’s Tuskagee as well as Voyage Direct—he swerves up two remixes. The first is a deep, seductive number with weird vocals and sonar like blips that really gets into your brain, and the other digital only bonus is an epic nine minute work out that really keeps you on your toes with its urgent techno drums and nervy melodies.
This is an exciting and standout new EP from all concerned.
