We are extremely happy to welcome our Finnish friend Tuomas Salmela on the label with this tailor-made 4 tracker. Since the early nineties the man has been an established name in the international club scene with key releases on prestigious labels like Guidance, Cocoon or Mood Music to name a few.
Salmelas production skills once again perfectly serve his unique sense of deepness. Both Tyrion and The Raw Deal are perfect examples of beautifully crafted deep techhouse hybrids, whereas I Woke Up With Your Hair On My Hips is a superb slomo disco cut.
This tongue in cheek track has been getting lots of love among the leaders of the nu disco school such as The Revenge, Deep Space Orchestra and Tensnake. The Raw Deal EP concludes with Bells Of Nuogram, a melancholic beauty with elements genuinely recorded in Finnish fjords among the deer.
EARLY DJ & MEDIA FEEDBACK
Really lovely EP this one. All four tracks are very strong but i think The Raw Deal is jumping out at me as the most playable for my sets. Hair on My Hips is a beauty though!
