In their 10-years production celebration the Ghent-based duo, Josh Lasden & Synoptic, from Belgium are presenting their Studio Sunday EP on the AWJ Recordings music label.
Both tracks are having the typical futuristic character, a genre where the duo is knowing from. You could easily call the genre, Futuristic House, music.
Studio Sunday brings a tech house feel with spooky sounding synths, percussion and a dance floor minded key evolving towards climaxes. The second break is irresistible bringing the dance floor key back in action.
Funky Swing, like the title already reveals, is more suited for funky house lovers. A funky bass line keeps rolling while jazzy organs and keys gently play around, giving a smooth break with waved synths.
