Pushing jackin, tech house grooves direct from New Jersey, The GameBreakerz's deep, sometimes sleazy, and often hypnotic brand of house music has been championed by the likes of such revered labels as King Street Sounds and Mr. Nice Guy. Their latest EP comes on SOUP NYC, with two originals backed up by powerhouse remixes from Agent! and Pezlo MD.
Title track 'Psycho' snaps along on a twisted 4/4 groove, with sizzling synth flourishes, spoken-word vocals and bubbling bass creating a heady, frantic atmosphere. 'Speculate' is similarly packed to the rafters with highly creative musical motifs, with a spectral lead synth giving it an especially eerie, otherworldly feel.
Remixes come from Hamburg's Agent! and Pezlo MD. The former transforms 'Psycho' into a rolling, sleazy, dirty house cut, while Pezlo MD's delicate treatment of the original elements of 'Speculate' is a joy to behold, with lush pads and ethereal washes of synth combining to create a thing of real fragile beauty, before a gritty acid line flips the vibe completely with real bite and menace.
