Being a driving force behind soulful and eclectic music scene in Russia, releasing fantastic music on 4Lux, Tru Thoughts, City Fly, Glenview and gaining constant support from the likes of Jimpster, Laurent Garnier, Osunlade, Joey Negro, Move D, Recloose just to name a few.
Communcation EP contains three original tracks and a remix from Daniel Leseman and Hans Peeman aka Fouk.
The opening track Side 2 Side (I Just) with a smart vocal sample cuts brings a unique mood and is a joyful disco and house jam, perfect for the summer.
Get On It! continues on the same vibe with more of those lovely vocal samples, the punchy kicks, slapped claps and grooved percussions, this baby will drag you into a devilish dance in seconds.
Feel Like Making Dub is a late night groover that is both soulful and deep. The layers of the kick and percussions, the dark bassline, keys and strings sure makes you feel a bit warmer.
Last but not least is Fouk on remix duties. The dynamic duo rearranges the already familiar elements of the original from Side 2 Side and turns it into something that would fit perfect in any dj-set with a MCDE flavour.
