Madtech Records welcomes back UK DJ/producer Jhonsson to the label this May to deliver his ‘Octik’ EP, accompanied by a remix from Wheats.
With a musical career stretching back almost two decades, and following a considerable breakthrough year in 2014, Barnsley’s Jhonsson has quickly become a rising name within house and beyond to make note of. Following releases on the likes of Knee Deep In Sound, Toolroom and Resonance Records, plus remixes for the likes of Bontan, Cera Alba and Vibe Killers, and support from key industry heavyweights, here we see the Yorkshire based producer return to Madtech Records to deliver two fresh, driving and melodic cuts, whilst fellow UK talent Wheats steps up on remix duties.
Rich, snaking synth leads hang over ever-evolving basslines as title cut ‘Optik’ opens the EP, whilst tension building snare fills combine with warping sub tones to reveal a powerful, peak time production destined to make noise in the months ahead.
Next up, Wheat’s interpretation of ‘Octik’ shifts the focus towards more percussive territories, as tracky drum loops and skipping hats combine to form a slick, rolling groove, before ‘Kham Kham’ shapes up the EP, with Jhonsson utilising heavy kicks, rich chord progressions and infectious vocals throughout.
Jhonsson ‘Octik’ EP is out on Madtech Records on 25th May 2018.
