Fragil 004 sees the debut release from Woman, a brand new production duo that brings together two of France's finest house talents in Terence :Terry: and USH. With his unique and polished skills behind the decks Terence :Terry: has forged a highly successful career as a global touring DJ. From his early days as resident of Afterparty Is Not a Crime and Oui Now, his regular forays to rock London's underground to his sets on the finest of European floors, dc10, Panorama Bar, Fabrik, Terence :Terry: has become one of the most in demand of French DJ's. His productions have been mainstays in the sets of many and have seen releases on 2020, Highgrade, Freak n'Chic and Robsoul. His partner in Woman is the relatively unknown USH. Coming from the world of popular music it might be easy to overlook his musical upbringing. Classically trained pianist, self taught guitarist and a youth that took the Frenchman, in the company of great friend Daniel Wang, through the very best of the Paris underground scene, via a late 90's foray to New York. During this time USH played live alongside many of his nations finest DJ's. Combining forces and talents the duo have formed Woman and together bring us the incredible "Expansions Of The Standard" EP. Two exotic originals backed by two impressive remixes. Its a brave artist that takes such obvious vocal samples and builds a new production around them, allowing the vocal to prove its power and lead from front yet not stifle the track so that it still sounds fresh and upfront. Woman have done just that on both "Woman" and "Shine On." Perlon and Rush Hour regular San Proper reworks "Woman," bringing a clash of delicate ravey chords and warm rhythm guitar that works to absolute low-slung perfection. On the remix of "Shine On", keeping it deep and Dutch is Gerd. The Clone and Music Man producer takes the original on a wonderful key-laden trip in the company of velvety pads and rasping claps. Superb.Big support from Laurent Garnier, Raresh, Tiefschwarz, Dj Hell, Martinez, Soul Clap, dOP and many many more. Laurent Garnier: "I am in love the GERD's mix!! Will play it for sure!"
