Richy Ahmed’s Four Thirty Two imprint continues to shine a light on the freshest talent emerging from the house music underground, and on the label’s third release, the London based Senzala get to flex their muscle on a fine release, backed with a remix from Ahmed and Jansons AKA Lovehertz.
Having previously released on the French label Mr. KS & Friends, and Politics Of Dancing, the Senzala boys, otherwise known as Jonni Santos & Sam Holland, deliver the goods once more on the “Phase” EP.
The title track packs rolling 909s and looping filtered disco riffs into its punch; never letting the energy levels drop. Vocal licks and techno-laced stabs drive this club-focused track fantastically, with a glossy production that really shines through. Richy Ahmed and Jansons come correct with a Loveherts remix; a heavyweight analogue bassline dominated the mix and the vocal parts slide down the arpeggiated riff as incessant synth stabs ramp up the heat, taking their remix right to fever pitch.
The Senzala boys grind out more solid house grooves on “All For You”, deploying disco samples and vocals that are filtered and twisted around the tough drums to great effect, whilst on “Agora”, the mood remains unfaltering as feel good riffs and warm keys wrap around Senzala’s steady beat to complete a stellar release that’s packed with energy and infectious vibes.
