DESCRIPTION

Jay Bliss is our first ever Romanian signing. There has been a influx of superb Romanian producers over the last years including A:rpia:r and the trend continues with Bliss and his Hermanndstadt Collective.

Developing a style sitting somewhere between house and techno, with strong Detroit roots he has released for the likes of Immigrant, Hudd Trax and Diynamic.

Pluto has been a staple of Ralph Lawson's sets for a while now, it's a smooth and crisp tech house roller that recalls classic 2020 releases gone by, especially those of Carl Finlow's.

On the flip we've turned to Skudge to give us their own take on 'Pluto'.  We've been fans of Skudge since they dropped their first single, and have had us transfixed with their excursions into pure analogue, loopy, dub techno ever since.   Their version of Pluto is a different beast to the original, all stuttering percussion and menacing strings, a perfect counterbalance to the original version.

Bonus digital track Time Travelling sees Jay Bliss continue with his deep hypnotic house theme to great effect.
