Released: Out Now!
Cat No: SB104
Known for their stylish work in electronic dance music, Polish music makers, Monojoke and Tuxedo team up and give us a two tracker from under their collaborative project, Fluente. Out this week on Sudbeat Music, the release carries on in the fluid and fabulously good work, expected from either at best.
The title track, ‘Identity’ is an original piece of work laden heavily in percussive and anchored with blithering bassline that goes on and on and on until you can’t help but hum the under-laying undulating pad that joins in right when you least expected it to. A simple formula throws cloud bearing synths and a rapidly ascending tone that drops down into a feel good break-down, all the while keeping all the electronic machination clean and never tosses you over to more, and then there’s the pulsing and tingling alongside which wins the day for everyone in contact with this work.
The jewel of the pack is ‘Inner Peace’ for me, laid nicely on the B side. Where the first track went on to ascend, this one descends you down into a bed of springy groove. The boys do well to go deeper around an atmospheric center, with fattish bass fooling you to submission. The thrill of this original mix is definitively divine. One cannot miss the upward trajectory it gets on, with the melodic quotient lifting one high into a drunken swoon. There are more tingles and bass stabs to burn you with. The drummy pattern is surrounded by many whirring parts giving off ear –candy whether a home listener or dancing at the club. Great stuff!!
