    Can You Dance EP

    Great Stuff Recordings

    January is a time for sobriety, chilling and cutting down on the partying 2 right? Wrong. When there are sassy new grooves like this to contend with, why bother with behaving? Jay Lumen's certainly got different ideas.

    The Hungarian whizz kid steps back up to the plate with his new EP, bringing the world another two slices of dancefloor prowess. Can You Dance is a typically sprightly affair, galloping along at a pacey tempo with pitch-shifting cymbal rides, Krupa-esque snare fills and a classic vocal sample taken down a few notches to a druggy timbre. The sample in question comes from Blaze feat. Palmer Brown's classic My Beat, and sounds as fresh and compelling today as it did almost 15 years ago. All this energetic texture is sat atop a wiggling, low-slung b-line, with a subtle jazzy flavour permeating the mix. Resistance is futile.

    Flip over for The Drummer and you'll be treated to another ride through Lumen's impressive arsenal of syncopated percussion and incessant bass pressure. Wigged-out vocal snippets and mind-bending FX weave in and out of his galloping groove, with a subtle yet tense breakdown that takes your eye off the ball and sets the drop up for a seriously potent impact.

    Magyar magic once again on both fronts!
