As a veteran DJ and producer with releases on Toolroom, Nervous Records, Anabatic, Symbols, Love&Other, and RAM Recordings, Jason Burns has a reputation for defying genre conventions. Drawing from a wide array of influences including disco, classic house, garage, R&B, soul, pop, and acid house, he has moulded a unique sound that doesn't fit neatly into any box.
Following his Once Again EP on SOUP NYC earlier this year, Jason returns to the groundbreaking label with The Power EP, a melodic, breaks-laden two-tracker accompanied by a huge remix from fellow SOUP affiliate Mad Villains.
The Power is a gorgeous electronic cut, with soothing keys and floating melodies juxtaposed with hard-hitting rave-inspired drums and chopped vocals which build to a wonderfully restrained crescendo: pure sunset vibes through and through. The Dark, although slightly darker in tone follows a similarly broken rhythmic structure, with a sinewy acid line dominating proceedings in its latter stages.
On the remix, Mad Villains delivers a jackin 4/4 interpretation of The Power, with a bubbling bassline and skittering hats taking things home, completing a superb package from one of the most underrated producers in the game.
