Rich Wakely drops the superb Underdog EP on SOUP NYC: two sterling house cuts with sublime remixes from Skapes, Joeski and Zenbi.

Whether it's topping the charts, releasing on labels like Avotre, Suara, Lost and Roush or blasting out sets all over the world, Rich Wakely's mix of solid beats and infectious grooves is receiving plaudits the world over.

As a producer and label manager, he has crafted many chart-topping hits, received continual BBC Radio 1 airplay and helping to launch a multitude of careers, while recent releases on OFF, Definition, Mile End and Resonance - bolstered by remixes from the likes of Darius Syrossian and Jamie Trench - have established Rich Wakely as a force to be reckoned with.

With latest release is Underdog EP: another winning two-tracker dropping on SOUP NYC with a heavyweight remix package.

As with many Rich Wakely productions, the title track is built around a solid, infectious groove and frenetic hats, eventually giving way to a sizzling synth line in the break. Wake and Bake rolls along on another chunky groove, with hard-hitting drums and whispered vocals lending a sinister edge to proceedings.

Remixes come from the UK's Skapes, NYC legend Joeski and SOUP resident Zenbi. Skapes adds a huge, amorphous bassline to Underdog, while Joeski enhances the tension already present in Wake & Bake, creating a deep, chugging, menacing house cut. Completing the package, Zenbi adds a twisted groove to Wake and Bake with clattering percussion and huge drops creating a main room masterpiece.
