HOLLOW EP (HANDSTAMPED VINYL)
12" Vinyl UK
Hand Stamped Label!
Sidney Charles kicks off his exciting new Heavy House Society label with a fantastic EP from Barem, which features a remix from the talented Frenchman Djebali.
German tastemaker Sidney has a history of A&Ring that dates back through his career, and he will bring that experience to this exciting new label. With a high impact sound that is compelling and original, the label has already signed up Barem, Bodeler and Josh Baker, while Sidney himself will also appear on the label. It all kicks off with Barem, a long time house and techno talent who has released on labels like Minus and his own Fun Records.
Opener Hollow is a seductive house track with gritty bass underpinning a tripped out groove that is delicately decorated with assortments of lush pads and effects. The remix comes from Djebali, a deep house don who runs his now self-titled label and flips this one into a punchy, warm and cavernous house track that is perfectly late night and absorbing.
GUM then takes you on a trip with a gooey lead synth line and Detroit style pads that are rich with soul. The smooth drums drive it along before closer Ups has minimal house grooves and dreamy pads that sink you into a reverie.
This is a classy first EP that launches this brand new label in great fashion.
