Haling from Asuncion, LPZs Ariel Soler, Javier Rodriguez and Jorge Carron have spent the past 4 years gradually putting Paraguay on the dance music map. For whats proving to be their watershed year, May saw the trio release the well-circulated >1983< EP via the Body Work imprint, shortly before delivering an era-themed mix for the fashion rag, Dazed & Confused. Now, following on from a recent collaboration with HyperDubs LV, the South Americans make their debut on the long serving Loungin Recordings. >The Benedict & Grace EP< combines two purpose-made productions specifically crafted to align with the West London imprints heritage for house at the deeper end of the spectrum. Cloaked in hardware reverb, A-side >Benedict< takes deep house to the doors of driving dub-techno, while >Grace< represents a refined garage roller, more respective of Loungins output in the early-2000s. Over on the flip, Rotterdams increasingly revered bruk-step lynchpin C.O.N.E converts Grace into an industrious slab of mechanical grime, before the Porto-based Trikk applies his low-end house sensibilities to Benedict by stripping it down into a slab of deep yet futuristic minimalism.
