Well known and firmly established as an outlet for high-quality house and techno, Ray Okpara’s AMA Recordings proudly presents the 39th release on the label, featuring an artist who has already released loads music on Ray’s label.

The man outta Dresden called Steven Cock. And.ID rounds up the EP with a Dub Remix. Starting with ‘Low‘ not the title track but within all tunes rays most played one. Super tool, staying deep but still catching the listener with this oscillator kind of synth sound. It just works its magic on the dancefloor.

The atmospheric chords drive throughout the whole tune. ‘Ufo’ is a more percussive orientated track. Still staying in tool style and very housey. Can be played in every moment of the set. Truly a driver. The groove just keeps you in the mood till the end.

Now coming to the main title track ‘Modulation’ not so reduced as the rest of the bunch but staying house. More breaks, more chords, and less a tool. Enough juice to rock the dancefloor with warm synth/chord sounds. The bassline is kept very simple but does its job very well.

‘Modulation (And.ID Dub Mix)’ stripped down the title track and progresses slowly without going to much to the peak. Deep-Tech-House with heavy bass elements. A sweet production which sweeps in and out some atmos and fills the room with a glow.

“Low Low Low works so good in every mood.” – Ray Okpara
