Optick & Ciprian Lemnaru – Connected EP

April 21, 2010 in Singles

Some tech-house all the way from Romania here that, crucially, remembers to have some house in with the tech…

Lead track Maya is, in its original form, a nice deep-ish, chuggy groover that’s got echoes of both San Francisco and Berlin. There’s also a more downtempo-y Marten Fisher remix thereof, but that’s bit too techy for me and also introduces a dodgy indie-ish male vocal, so let’s move swiftly on to Kukta, which takes us back to the dancefloor. This time we’re in more straight-up European/techno territory but it’s a decent little bubbler all the same.
The original of Maya is the one for me, though.
Out: This week
About: This is on 90 Watts records outta the Netherlands, who also brought us the rather groovy Guilty Secret by Presetone recently (reviewed on this blog on 8 April). Here’s their website.
