The Twirl family continues to successfully expand well into its second year as a sought after imprint. The first year of releases from label runners Shaun J. Wright & Alinka featured remixes from the likes of Kim Ann Foxman, JD Samson, Snuff Crew and Lil' Mark, with support from BBC Radio 1's Annie Mac and Heidi, alongside notable artists Kenny Glasgow, Groove Armada and Robert Owens. The second year of releases has included the much praised 'The Wisdom To Know The Difference' EP from Ena Lind and the dark & dirty 'It's Acid' from the Apollo Music Group and Bump Music boss Lil' Mark and dancefloor veteran Della. Twirl favorite, Spatial Awareness, returns with his unique brand of dancefloor demolition for his second EP on the label, 'Let's Get Visceral'.
The release opens with the title track, 'Let's Get Visceral', a throbbing tune with a percolating bassline. Catchy vocal samples weave between the nimble percussion and building strings, forewarning dancers that the track will be 'taking over your body'. Echoing synth stabs tracing the funky bassline and subtle drum twists prove to be rapturous as the track progresses.
Hailing from Mexico City, Mijo & Macaulay re-envision the tune as a Twilo-esque circuit banger in the best way imaginable. While maintaining the original's infectious bassline, the duo add a filtered synth line that is relentless alongside stuttering vocals and a streamlined arrangement.
'Dead Meta' is a slow-burning, winding acid number that builds from a foundation of jacking claps and rims before morphing into a chill inducing, warped affair sure to set the dancefloor ablaze.
Photonz & Violet from Lisbon round off the package swimmingly with a remix that shifts the original acid and string elements into a driving tour-de-force that can sit comfortably in most peak-hour sets.
