Audiojack’s label GRUUV has served up some really good releases in recent years and this is no different. 
Emanuel Satie’s ‘Sound The Alarm EP’ begins with the title track and has a distinct quirky feel to it. The chopped sleazy vocal compliments the acidic atmosphere really nicely in this track and the alarms sounds give it a fun factor. The end result is a raw and fun big room banger that I feel will tempt even the most elite chin strokers to the floor.

The second track from Emanuel, ‘Strobe Lights’ has remnants of the old school with a groovy 90’s feel with rhythm and synth leads that bubble and explode throughout. Synthy straight up goodness with a classic feel.

House heavyweight Mathias Kayden is on the remix duties with his ‘Ring The Balls’ remix of the title track ‘Sound The Alarm’. This remix is deep and has a nice rolling bass hook that carried me from the off. Through this I was greeted by delicate shimmering synths, shunting snares and a big boy US house slap in the face, and i liked it.

Satie goes from strength to strength, and though this release seems a little less serious than previous releases it certainly does not lack in substance and I’m looking forward to hearing more from both Emanuel and Mathias in the near future.
