12" Vinyl UK
Incl. Remix by Hector & David Gtronic
New York producer Amo, an assiduous beatsmith and go-to force for some of the most eminent names in the game, expertly delivers a stirring four-tracker on Hector’s VL Limited imprint. An off-shoot of VL Recordings, the sister label was launched as a platform for timeless releases with the avid vinyl collector in mind.
Flourishing within New York’s underground house scene in the late 2000s, Amo’s DJ sets earned him a reputation as a distinguished mixer before he hardened his production skills studying Recording Arts & Music Production. Later he’d establish a touring event series, GreenRoom Family, drop EPs on NG Trax, Dissonant Records, Brain On Couch and Underyourseat, whilst gaining support from Guti, Rossko, Randall M and Javier Carballo, amongst others.
"This EP has been a long time coming. I first got introduced to Amo's music via David and Chad over a year ago. We’ve been swapping tracks ever since. I was really impressed with his releases, thinking he could be the latest addition to the VL family. When Amo sent us more music I instantly picked these tracks for the label, I even played one out last year at our VL stage at Sunwaves. Amo fits perfectly with our musical ethos, and I’m excited to finally share this EP." - Hector
Leading the EP is ‘Find Turn’, a muted, oddball cut that lands with a woozy top line, propulsive drum loops, and a warbling, hypnotic vocal. ‘Spitgame’ slams with a bassline intensified by chunky drums. Label chief Hector and Vatos Locos sparring partner David Gtronic seize ‘Find Turn’ for a rerub, preserving the magnetic pull of the vocal while adding crisp, scattering percussive touches. Amo closes the EP with the spacey ‘Whattosay’, a moody track that’s custom made for those head down moments. [info from Label]
