A trio of tasty house cuts can be found on Matthieu Faubourg’s ‘Apolo’ EP for Street Tracks. The
French producer has already notched up an impressive set of releases for labels like Neovinyl,
STRCTR, Smile For A While and childsplay, and positively shines on this new EP for the Waze &
Odyssey backed imprint.
The roots of garage house can be heard across all three cuts; ‘Too Strong’ leans on deep organ stabs,
tight snare fills and a looping vocal, whilst ‘Fragrance’ deploys deft piano licks over crunchy drums and
a lively bassline. Rounding off the EP, Faubourg unleashes an eccentric melody line over booming sub
bass on the title track, ‘Apolo’.
