Fresh off the back of an enormous Hypercolour EP that saw the house and bass movements come together in awe and appreciation, Tom Demac returns with the Little Bits That Matter EP on Pets Recordings. A restless soul with constantly evolving live material, its hard to imagine the London based artist releasing anything less than genuinely unique productions, and Little Bits That Matter does not fall short. The three-tracker heaves from start to finish with thick set synth work, far-flung vocals and all consuming basslines; a perfect end-of-year gem that highlights label bosses Catz N Dogzs penchant for a low end focus.
Title track Little Bits That Matter sees Tom Demac take the modern house template and cultivate it into what sounds like a living, breathing entity. Rhythmic claps and hi hats are offset by stifled pants and Phil Kays vocal is so beautifully blended with the melody that its impossible to separate the two at parts. Tanner chugs along with a sophisticated groove, sprightly strings and a striking vocal hook until a vintage disco inspired break down elevates the track even further from the norm. Far darker in sound, B side Rain Of Colour works with a plucky, dissonant melody and a sweeping, club controlling bassline that will leave you mindblown.
Raw, personal and, most importantly, instantly danceable, Tom Demacs offering follows a long line of exciting, high quality output from the Polish Pets imprint. The Little Bits That Matter EP will be released digitally - 17th Dec - and on vinyl from 10th Dec.
