DESCRIPTION

Fina is a new record label releasing on slabs of wonderful black vinyl.

Fina is created by Simon Morell and Matt Long with love from Leeds.

Fina is part of the 2020Vision music family.

Fina is not afraid to experiment with different styles and tempos.

Fina embraces mid tempo grooves, disco induced dubs and deeper shades of house.

Fina features up and coming fresh producers.

Fina will be throwing unique one-off parties in a space near you.

Fina can be pronounced 'Finer' if you like.

Fina came from an Italian word and has nothing to do with petrol stations.

Fina celebrates the spice of life.

FINA has been soaking up the sunshine over the past few weeks procrastinating over the best time to release its next summer cut. With global warming rubbing everyone up the right way, we feel now is as good a time as any to drop FINA 004.

Originally from South Africa, ESA Mervin Granger may now be more Glasgow concrete towers than table top mountain but his grooves are pure house pedigree. From his releases under his Mervin Granger moniker to exclusive remixes for OOFT! the Cape Town Cat was a natural choice for a very ‘Summer’ shuffling three track jaunt.

Title track Veloore is immediately recognisable from its soft analogue piano chords, amalgamated with a dreamy filtered vocal and a bass line which nods to the acidic side of deep house. On the remix is Erefaan Pearce, a fellow South African who pins soul to every production he lays his hands on. Reworking vocals and bass lines into an infectious frenzy that is almost impossible to resist, Erefaan draws that sunshine feeling from every angle. Think Las Salinas and you are nearly there.

Completing the EP on the flipside is Galaxy, a deep vocal number paying homage to all the Lazy Dog’s. Cosmic deep house aimed purely at the terrace.
