AdMaiora hits release number 20 in style with a fresh EP from Romanian established duo NTFO which includes two superb remixes by Lauren Lo Sung and Ilario Liburni. The guys of NTFO (Jargon, 20/20 Vision, Objectivity) are familiar faces for the label as we had the pleasure to release their remix of Ray Okpara's latest 'Sligerstai' which got tons of positive feedback and is currently dominating our Beatport top 10. Now they return with 'Lusy EP' - a lush pleasure of deep house vibes infused with their very own tech groove trademark.
Opener 'Lucy' rotates around a simple but effective shaken groove with thorny kicks and a super crafted sub bassline. The main vocal sample only appears in the right moments and adds a extra sense of elegance to the wandering synths and pads.
Up next, 'Unvelied' goes more minimal for a rubbery tech house piece where little jumbled percussion are immersed into a dark dimensions of gloomy bass and low freaky vocals. The electric synths give an extra spin to the track, derivering a slick house number and we're sure that the melody will stuck in your head for a long time.
On the flip side we have Liverpool's rising talent Lauren Lo Sung on remix duties for 'Lucy'. For Lauren, 2017 was her biggest year so far and 2018 is proving even better. She is consistently delivering well treated club hits on labels such as DJ Steaw's Rutilance, Vatos Locos and Circus, also co-founding her very own 'eleven records' and running sell-out LOLiFE parties in Liverpool, UK. Lauren's deep stripped-back style focuses on; dub techno with a fresh, organic housy feel and this remix for 'Lucy' is no exception. With a crescendo hands-in-the-air version, Lauren arranges the remix on a pluck that dominates the track above teasing drums and intergalactic pads. A one-to-watch remix from one of the ones to watch stars of the near future.
Lastly goes the remix from Italo-Belgian Ilario Liburni who close the EP with a chunky and funky interpretation of 'Lucy'. Ilario had some massive vinyl hits lately and he also dedicates a lot of efforts on his own 'Invade' and 'Cardinal' labels. His version is dreamy and driving with bubbling synths and an infectious sense of loopines until the breakdown comes in with vague lo-fi synths and strings before it drops with the whispery vocals lending it into a late night feel.
