Federico Grazzini kicks off his brand new label Ubuntu in some style here. For the occasion he serves up some tunes and also enlists E-Dward! and Double Dash to do the same. The result is an EP that is full of killer house tunes and therefore marks out this label as an essential one to watch right from the off.
Up first is E-Dward! with Today Is Your Day, a chunky and hard hitting house tune with rock solid extras. Trippy textures and synths add to the madness and clipped old school chords bring a classic feel. Grazzini then remixes this one into a more tunnelling techno track with rubbery drum and icy hi hats.
Next up is Double Dash with Slurm McKenzie, which is a sleazy number with an electro type and breakbeat drum line running up its spine. The effect is sweaty and intense, moody and brilliant.
Lastly, the boss man rounds things out with Bender, a trippy tech cut with lithe synths and spooky feels. This is a fine first release that is sure to turn many heads, both DJs and dancers.
