Ukraine is one of those countries that is slowly making his appearance into the European scene, being influenced by the “Rominimal” sound from the West and the more techno-oriented sound from the East. Within the vast panorama, JOSS’ label ARTREFORM has been a stable point over the last 8 years, with releases that involved names such as the local studio-wizard iO (Mulen), Chaim, Ugur Project, Tripmastaz, Rhadow, FilOu, Christian Burkhardt, GFD, and Kirik to name a few.
Label owner JOSS
The 37th release comes from the wise hands of Harry Light, who’s back on the label after three years since his debut EP with the entitled three-tracker ‘Take A Journey’. Kickin' off with the main track, Harry delivers a huge a dancefloor tool with a bouncy bassline, siren-ish synths and a solid 909 rolling groove; here, the aggressiveness of the track is contrasted by a whispering female vocal and some epic sinister atmospheres. Next, is ‘Faux Bro’ where punchy kicks and 909 open hats perfectly match with an old school-sounding bassline (remember the old Hot Creations stuff?) and more female vocal chops amongst sweeping synths and rich drum shots.
Closing the EP is 'Entrance', marked by lovely deep pads, which are later joined by dubby and delayed synths. Little by little, the track evolves with skipping drum licks and bubbling sub-bass, accented by infectious female vocal loops throughout, rounding out an impressive EP.
