This is a rather unexpected hook up – tech house tastemaker Matthias Tanzmann releasing on bass heavy and playful San Fran star Claude Von Stroke’s Dirtybird label. The pair have known each other a while and the former has played at the latter’s events so this seems a natural thing to happen.
First out of the blocks is The Treat, which drives on with tech energy, layered up toms and drilling bass. Some vocal samples make the whole thing pop and are sure to get big reactions on the right floors. Filthy then has slicker, more cool drum combos. Off kilter samples and sci-fi sounds bring plenty of charm to this one and a squelchy bassline finishes it off in real style. A fresh EP for sure.
