PIEK – Insorit (SINCO17)

piek review

The next release to come from Spanish imprint Sincopat comes from Piek. The versatile producer has already released on labels including DIYnamic, Cecille and Smoke N Mirrors, and his tracks have found themselves in compilations from Derrick Carter and Nic Fanciulli. His latest work – the Insorit EP– comprises of two summery cuts alongside remixes from Marc Scholl and label owner AFFKT.

Title track ‘Insorit’ opens the release with fairly straightforward foundations that are gradually embellished upon with a tasteful combination of filtered melodies and soulful interjections, blossoming midway through in what would make a nice summer opener. Marc Scholl puts his own twist on things with his ‘Glory Hole’, adding weighty reinforcements to the bassline and introducing a slightly darker undercurrent that feels a little fresher than the original.

What You Want From Me’ couples some expertly programmed percussion that shuffles along with silky-smooth vocals, in what is undoubtedly the more unique of the two originals. AFFKT puts to use the melodic build up from the second half to form the basis of his remix, which snowballs around a thickset rhythm.

It’s a strong addition to a label that already boasts a diverse back-catalogue of house music with a hint of Spanish flavour, and will surely get some heavy play time this summer. 

RELEASE DATE: 1st August 2013
