AWSI / Asvajit / Prodot
JAMBUWAX 001 (VINYL ONLY)
First vinyl only release from Jambutek.
The first physical offering from the Jambutek Imprint features four slices of contemporary house music committed to wax. Rich sound design, heavily-swung grooves and a healthy dose of minimalist flavour.
The A-side contains two rolling cuts from Argentinian producer AWSI. Leading the charge is "Last Try", its wobbly synth fills and filtered chords bubbling along with a steady tenacity that should get even the sternest heads nodding in agreement. The slightly bouncier "Mate Cocido" features a sparse yet infectious bass line, layered on a bed of haunting pads and complemented by swingy, modern percussion. Two low-key weapons for the discerning house-head.
Flipping over to the B-side, label boss Asvajit serves up "Encrypted"; its washed out pads, quirky chord stabs and acidic fills providing the backdrop for a snappy low end groover. For the B2, Prodot rounds things off nicely with "Rekord"; laying down a delicate balance of synthesized keys and soulful vocal cuts accompanied by tight, percussion lines. A restrained display of lush sound design; particularly suited for small rooms and hazy after-hours. [info from label]
