do you know gummihz? the gummihz that hails from greece but was raised on a steady diet of chicago and new york house? the gummihz that sings? the gummihz that incorporates disco, electro, jazz, and chanson into his productions? well if you don t, now you will. the >sleepless nights< double 12 inch is gummihz first release on mobilee since >under the sun< and is a radical departure from anything we ve ever heard from gummihz ù or even mobilee ù before. gummihz multidimensional production abilities allow him to dig deep into his roots and influences on the one hand while simultaneously exploring new, uncharted territory on the other. alternatingly retro and futuristic, this two-part ep series is a portrait of gummihz as an artist from a variety of angles, one we ve only seen fragments of up until now. one might view this ep as an attempt on gummihz behalf to explore his musical roots in a contemporary context, with the end result being a strikingly varied yet cohesive statement of gummihz musical and artistic leanings. on the one hand, gummihz delves into his past, with tracks such as >sunshine dub< and >bang< fusing the samples, cut-offs, and filtered loops of french house with an almost balearic, hypnotic twist. on the flip-side, we also get a snapshot of gummihz at his most somber ù>love call<, featuring vocals from gummihz himself, has a jackin house beat but bears no resemblance to the cheery sounds of chicago house on which our grecian friend was raised. instead, he favors a cloudy, almost cold-blooded vibe, with chilling lyrics manipulated to the point of near-indecipherability (bringing to mind the brilliant vocal work of the knife and fever ray) with a final product that is nonetheless aptly suited for the dance floor.
