New York trendsetters Cuttin' Headz welcome two pivotal figures for their next EP: DJ Sneak and Tripmastaz once again come together as Rare Two Inc. on four fantastic new tracks that bring together both artists’ considerable know how.
Sneak, of course, is the house gangster, Chicago pioneer and larger than life DJ character who serves up impossible raw, hard hitting house. Russian Tripmastaz is the founder of Plant 74 label who has more than a decade of aliases under his belt and always explores crisp, hypnotic house and techno and plenty in between.
First up is Space Clash, a cosmic, loopy jam that takes you into space with swirling sci-fi pads and uplifting drums that will sound great in the sun. Next up, Ass 9 Hunnit Fitty is seven hard hitting minutes of elastic and percussive house to get crowds marching to its sharp-cut beats. It builds the pressure and keeps the grooves locked, while Last Tango In Yo Ass is a multi-layered tune with bobbing synths bringing colour to the timeless house drums. Last of all, the excellent Juicyfication Of House has hard hitting boom-bap drum line and spooky pads ringing out into a spacious groove.
These are four varied but vital house cuts that will make an indelible mark on dance floors this summer.
Support expected from Mixmag, Beats 1
