Although this is the first time the two talented DJ/producers have released on Wow! Recordings (either individually or as a duo), they have previously linked up for labels including: Tiger Records, New Violence Records, Wasted People, Yellow Tail and most recently, Green Velvet’s Cajual Records.
Kicking off the EP is title-named track, ‘Hands Up’, a six-minute offering that blends trippy, high-pitch vocal snippets with various stuttering drums, steady claps and other Tech-House elements to great effect.
Leading on is ‘Xone’, a deep-groover that maintains a steady 4/4 rhythm throughout, as spoken word samples are scattered alongside off-kilter effects and tidy percussive elements.
‘America’ closes the EP, a bass-heavy number that once again sees the German pair utilise chopped and screwed vocal snippets and other obscure pad tones to create a dark, brooding and infectious groove that is made for the clubs in Europe where they regularly perform in.December 20, 2017
