giant records 10th release is from new york born adam collins and limited to 150 hand stamped and numbered copies. adam is widely known for his work as one half of production duo omni am, along with marky star and counts derrick carter and evil eddie richards and a whole host of others, amongst their fans. adamís release for giant is titled - day2day and has all the trademarkís of adamís wonky, left of field, slightly off kilter grooves - day2day builds and snakes itself into a bottom bass heavy house jam - chicago style keys mould the snare and hats into an infectious work out - with an alien like hook that keeps it all slightly wobbly. the next cut is from the super talented carl finlow under carlís random factor guise, a beauty in its own right ! super tight drums and a punchy random factor bassline takeís this mix on a journey through many shades of electronica - as the track swells nicely with warm atmospheric pads and sprinkles of emotive keys, with an electro style hook that keepís it all swinging in carlís trademark sound. the next mix is from la based producer mieka du franx. miekaís mix strips the original down to the bare essentials and gives it a tuff minimal feel. the last mix is from echo of glory, which seeís echo take the track on a acid tinged work out - adding dubbed out vocals and super subbed out bass.
a-side rising pharaoh. b-side rising pharaoh dub, rising pharaoh (bon johnson mix) a-side tech funky mover with killer bass, built around a bluesy vocal and guitar plus a faint but effective flute. b-side features a pumped up stripped down tech house leaning dub, simple and to the point with quite an infectious drive and cowbell thing that ought to get them on their feet. last mix is a full on funked up version courtesy of bon johnson
changing tides ep is the fourth release of our kommuna tapes imprint. the a sides features two breaky, electro-infused tracks from undersound affiliate chris geschwindner, while the flipside goes back to the roots: adam collins, half of legendary tech-house golden era duo omni am, brings us impeccable groove, and early 00s deep house icon seafoam allows us to trip up through the early evening or morning hours.
track by track, we build a kommuna of artists who share our insatiable appetite for music discovery, guided by a certain vision of the dancefloor: deep stripped-down grooves, sometimes challenging, always with character.
