Since his Control Freak debut with the 'Lift' EP in 2019, Guava has been hard at work in the studio. Following a move to Berlin (and a series of releases on the likes of Banoffee Pies and Holding Hands) he's back on the label with a new and refined style, retaining the melodic flourishes of his earlier releases whilst turning his focus squarely towards the dancefloor - a perfect fit for our white label series.
As an accomplished session musician, Guava continues to explore the synthesis between digital and analog production and songwriting techniques, innovatively self-sampling his own guitar playing across the record to add a human touch to his airtight productions. On new 4-tracker 'The Dolphins are Back in Venice', which includes collaborations with rising UK artists Breaka & LUXE, Guava draws influence from a broad range of dance music styles in true CF fashion - combining rising, trance-influenced melodies with the syncopated rhythms and bassweight of the UK scene.
