The latest transmission on Body Parts comes from rapidly rising Tel Aviv producer Saraga, who builds on a strong body of work released to date on labels such as Whitech, Decay Records, Plattenbank, and most recently via Hernan Cattaneo's Sudbeat. With a keen focus on rolling grooves and hypnotic atmospheres, his distinctive sound fits in perfectly with the Body Parts narrative.
The Pikes EP opens up with the title track, where a smooth and steady minimal house groove undulates through a hazy landscape of fragmented speech samples and distant textures.
"Full Of Candys" is sharper in comparison, using a snapping beat and fulsome bass to command an energetic groove aimed squarely at the peak of the dancefloor without compromising on the tripped-out qualities that embed his productions.
By way of contrast, "Better Sun" rides on disco-flavoured drums and uses some slick, head-turning touches of melody to punch through the mid range and add a sprightly edge to the situation.
"SIS" finishes the EP off with a subtle swing, looming sub bass and a delicate female vocal to create an alluring mood, perfect for deeper moments in the dance.
