Doublet – Tee’s 5 EP

March 5, 2013 in Singles

Doublet Tee's 5 EP Holic TraxAfter all that darkness earlier, let’s lighten the mood a little with this fourth release from London’s Holic Trax label, a four-track affair that sees label boss Tomoki Tamura team up with Tuccilo under the Doublet moniker.

It’s quite a varied EP, too. The title cut, Tee’s 5, is a contemporary-sounding deep/tech cut with a ruff n’ rasping main synth hook that reminds me in an odd way of the Inspector Gadget sample used by Doug E Fresh in The Show – there’s also a T2’s DJ Tool mix if you wanna drop that hook into your sets on its own. Tamago, on the other hand, is a much more traditional-sounding deep houser with a garage-y organ line to die for, and naturally enough my pick of the bunch, while Joint Soft sees the pair back in a more contemporary vein but throws in an old-skool rave-y breakbeat for good measure.

Taken as a whole, the EP sounds like what it is – the fruit of two producers messing about in a studio together (Tuccilo’s Ibiza studio this winter, to be precise) and throwing all sorts of random ideas into the pot as they do so. In this instance, though, what’s come out is not a confused mess, but rather an EP that’s well worth checking.
