DOPAMINE GAMES EP
12" Vinyl UK
George Smeddles and LondonGround touch down on Neverdogs Bamboleo Records to close November as they deliver the latest split EP on the label entitled Dopamine Games
Founded in early 2019, Neverdogs’ Bamboleo Records imprint continues further its ever-growing reputation as a hub for quality productions across the house spectrum, with releases to date from the label bosses themselves alongside a selection of emerging talent and close friends that represent their vision, with each taking one side of a record and delivering productions that showcase their own sound. The latest instalment in the split EP series sees the introduction of two fresh artists, with Resonance Records co-founder George Smeddles making his debut on the label following releases on the likes of Sola, VIVa and more, whilst Argentinian producer DJ LondonGround helms the flip as both producers deliver two original cuts each to form their ‘Dopamine Games’ EP.
Opening the release, ‘Games’ quickly unravels into a slick groove-heavy production guided by soulful vocal hooks and rich stabs, whilst ‘Feeling’ sees Smeddles lay the focus on bumping sub-bass and rolling percussion arrangements throughout. The flip-side welcomes the introduction of LondonGround’s first original ‘Digital Dopamine’, merging hefty kicks with dynamic, ever-evolving chord melodies, before flowing into ‘Loco22’ as the heady cut introduces tripped out vocals and crisp organic drum work to conclude proceedings in fine fashion.
