February 13th sees Swiss-born DJ/producers Mendo and Yvan Genkins team up for their debut EP on Mar-Ts acclaimed label, Wow! Recordings, entitled Buggsy.
Although this is the first time the double act have released on Mar-Ts imprint, the two artists have collaborated previously, releasing on Coyus Suara, Defected Records, Mihalis Safras & Mark Brooms Material, Nic & Mark Fancullis Saved Records and on Mendos own label, Clarisse Records, in the past.
Kicking off this excellent two-track release is the EPs title-named track, Buggsy, a funk-driven Tech House roller featuring; vibrant percussive elements, an abundance of sound effects and a sprinkling of old-school Funk/Disco samples which are interspersed throughout the six-minute number.
Closing the EP is Smashed, a darker Tech-House offering that sees the pair combine powerful four-to-the-floor rhythm with industrial pad-effects, manipulated vocal inserts and a deep and moody underlying sub bass that adds further intensity to the track.
