Curses stands for a dark romantic take on House and Techno, with influences of sexy Italo and nostalgic snares and synths. He's had a recent slew of releases on labels like NEIN, OFF, Let's Play House alongside his own Safer At Night imprint and now we welcome him onto Rejekt Music.
The EP kicks off with the title track skirting a line between deep, dark late night House and Techno. A track full of tension with huge dubbed out elements adding to the depth of its warm analogue sound. Next up we have a 2 tracks that showcase Curses slower side slotting into the Indie Dance / Nu Disco area of the consciousness. The loss in tempo in no way compromises their dance floor appeal as "Cash In Hand" grooves its way along with catchy synths and a hypnotic bass line exuding an infectious energy while "Senza Mourire" builds solidly with a prominent synth lead and strong acid flavours building into a well-crafted and intense break aimed at working the audience into a heady crescendo before we ramp up the tempo once again and lead you out with driving drums and an acid house baseline worked around tripped out vocals that make up "What You Want".
Curses distinctive sound was instantly recognisable to us as something that we had to have on our label. His heavy grooves lay siege to the ears enticing you in with dark drums, tape delays and warm throbbing bass. Just the way we like it! Perfect for dingy basements and cavernous main rooms alike . . .
