The 5th release on the newly-formed WetYourSelf Recordings sees the label continue on its unique Techno journey. Born out of their weekly Sunday night parties at fabric in London, the label pushes on with its monthly release schedule of quality music.
Alex Under is a world wide recognised talent and a firm favourite at WYS! With his legendary productions and DJ sets are legendary, he is a true maverick whose musical universe is timeless. His tracks consistently bridge all that was good in techno past with all that is current and forward-thinking in the present day.
The Madrid-based "CMYK" label manager now teams up with fellow Spaniard Ramset to present an exclusive EP for WetYourSelf Recordings. As a DJ, Ramset has played alongside many of the world's most recognised talents and has fast become one of Spain's most noted DJs. We are extremely happy to welcome his debut production alongside Alex to WYS!
The EP consists of two title tracks and 3 exciting remixes.
Gorrezno is an intense unapologetic peak-timer that holds no prisoners. Its drive and synth lines push the listener to a higher audio state as only Alex Under knows how. As a DJ this track serves perfectly as a dancefloor punisher and as a clubber the track will make you work hard but leave you energised.
With its old school chimes and skippy drum loops, Juan valdes is a call to party and a perfect compliment to Gorrezno, creating an entirely different dancefloor space. The tracks builds slowly, with a dizzying melody and gradually transports the listener to an intense Techno state of mind.
Also featuring on the vinyl, WYS! resident Jacob Husley provides a remix inspired by his weekly sets at fabric. This emotional mix makes subtle use of the vocal and creates a musical but stripped-back track that flies in under the radar then bombs the dancefloor with some daisy-cutting synths and percussive rhythms.
Mihai Popoviciu is considered one of Europe's best electronic music producers who solidly bridges the gap between DJ and producer while excelling at both. With a history of big-impact releases on labels such International DJ Gigolos, Mood Music and Gatspiel, Mihai's release schedule is a hectic one. We are super-happy that he has taken time to lend his unique ear to WYS005.
The result is a perfect minimal contrast to the big title track with the darker elements of the original but remaining bouncy and energetic. Keeping it simple he creates a remix that works equally as a DJ tool or mood creator on the floor.
Mexican born but London-based talent Betoko is a favourite of the WYS! family. His tracks have been featured and played by M.A.N.D.Y, Gregor Tresher, Martinez, Steve Lawler, Dubfire, Sven Vath and Marco Carola. Deep and funky, his remix is an instant uplifter and playful pleaser making it the perfect flipside to the darker elements of the title track.
