Firstly releases of this kind light up the club sky like no other, Stripped Recordings does well to spotlight Belarus DJ/Producer Michael A with his latest offering titled, ‘The Sea/ Perception’. These fresh tracks rattle the bass bins in subtle yet wondrous fashion.

‘The Sea’ in particular contains a bull dozing bass line with corroded densely structured rhythms that fall in to each other, what’s left to say, it simply makes you dewy eyed. Furthermore, the slightly dithering percussives compliment the bobbling and syncopated melodic mood along-side a culling heart stirring break-down and a dollop of echoing vocalism promises to work wonders on the floor.

The second track, ‘Perception’ provides a move on in tempo to a nicety, making the pack even more interesting as it unfolds with a growling interior wrapped in smart underground soundscapes. Reaching as far out as the ears can take! The best part of the track is that it releases some kinda relentless shakin’ ‘n’ bakin’ vibe. The dense pulsating melody quotient uplifts and a lush Amazonian feeling one cannot run from. This one is just about peak time fare, nicely masked under its mesh of electronic gloopy creation.
