Doublet – Synthonic EP

August 10, 2013 in Singles

Doublet Synthonic EP Holic TraxNumber six from London label Holic Trax (est. 2012) sees label boss Tomoki Tamura teaming up with Tuccillo, a name that’ll be very familiar to TIWWD readers by now, as Doublet.

Three tracks in a total of four mixes here. Synthonic marries no-nonsense Chicago-esque percussion with an ominous looping bass riff and the merest suggestion of a Stingily-esque falsetto vocal, Discovered Night is a deeper house cut with some gorgeous pads sitting atop crisp kicks and some nice throbby, pulse-y bass, all topped with another barely-there vocal (but female this time, and not as constant a presence as the vocal on Synthonic), while Cosmic Sign operates in similar territory but in slightly trippier, more wibbly fashion… one for the very late hours, this.

Those buying this digitally also get a ‘reprise’-like Pad Export mix of Cosmic Sign – which really is just the pads, basically – while those buying the vinyl get the satisfaction of owning one of 500 limited edition coloured slates. You pays your money, etc…

Out: This week
