If you are into the type of techno-infused house beats that drive dancefloors crazy, theres very little chance that you havent yet heard of Jay Lumen, one of the most prolific tech-house producers in todays scene. Having recently remixed Green Velvets "Bigger Than Prince" and with releases in some of the most notorious labels around including a previous EP in OFF, we had to have him back for another exquisite pair of tracks in our beloved OFFSPIN eclectic series.
It doesnt get any groovier than "Dusty Memories", the first track in the EP is a dancefloor burner, with a swinged house beat, a huge bassline and a very catchy vocal work. Stabs and intensive tension throughout the breakdowns plus very well crafted arrangements blend together for a sure hit.
Things get darker on "Empty Ghetto Bastard" and indeed, its a journey into the ghetto with heavy drum hits, rap scattered vocals, big synth stabs and a jacking drum pattern to drive everyone insane. This one is truly oriented to the clubs while, as always, gathering all the melodic ingredients to keep the energy flowing.
