Sam Holland is no stranger to Richy Ahmed’s Four Thirty Two label. Having made up one half of Senzala, the duo released a well-received single, the ‘Phase’ EP, and a collaborative release with Jansons, before heading their separate ways. Now on solo ventures, Holland tees up a solid two track single, backed with a remix from James Solace.
‘Supersonic’ finds Holland teasing and filtering a sweet disco loop over a spirited drum pattern, female vox snippets and a rumbling bassline, its breakdown indeed sending this track supersonic!
James Solace follows up his own recent Four Thirty Two release, as well as entries into the Hot Creations and Last Night On Earth arsenal, with a scintillating remix. Keeping the disco vibes very much alive, Solace’s mix doesn’t deviate too much from the original, but it’s a slick and nifty take that adds a superb spin to this release.
‘Banshee’ rolls with punchy percussion and driving force, a track that focuses on the drums in a classic Dub Mix tradition, evoking shades of Dennis Ferrer, Kerri Chandler and the timeless US house style.
