DESCRIPTION

Despite having numerous aliases, the production quality for prolific Dutch house producer Gerd has always stayed the same. Following his 2013 collection of remixes of MK’s ‘Always’, Gerd is back with a two track debut release on DFTD. Gerd collaborates with Marcoradi on the EP’s title track which is based around a classic piano stab chord progression accompanied by a haunting vocal sample. The pair manage to build the track to almost cacophonic extremes before dropping into a delightfully warm bass synth release to start the wild ride all over again. ‘Work Da Tool’ on the other hand sees Gerd back on solo duties. Opening with a classic house sustained string chord, incorporating reggae like vocal samples before breaking into a pumping, bass synth driven, masterpiece, ‘Work Da Tool’ definitely ‘works’ on the dance floor.
