Percussion has always played a vital role in establishing the label's foundation of sound - nothing gets us grooving quite like drum-laden house music. TOR's latest project, the Zaiana EP, showcases the exploits of this primordial hunt. Darksidevinyl and Ucha come together to make their debut with the When We Dip label family. The two have established a sterling reputation for powerful afro-house in recent years, releasing on the likes of Connected Frontline, Deepalma, and Monaberry.

Zaiana leads the way with an irresistible groove setting the foundation. Deep drums and a massively warm bassline kick things right into gear. Piano chords bring house influences into the fold, as an afro vocal quickly hooks the ear. Jazzy tones come to play as we enter the heart of the track, providing classic musicality during the bridge, all before diving right back into the vivacious rhythms. Sitting perfectly at the intersection of afro, jazz, funk, and house, Zaiana is sure to provide dancefloor exhalation.

Ode takes things into darker territory, offering melodic traits for late night affairs. Elongated strings set the stage, while synths ebb and flow throughout the early stages. Percussion, yet again, takes the lead and keeps the vibe alive from start to finish. A big culmination of energy concludes with a firm kick, and the bassline adds grit as the track progresses.
