Middlesbrough’s Luna Records prepare for the summer with the ‘Preserve The Light’ EP, a collaborative release from Luna artist Brett Jacons and Kabuto & Koji man Patrice Meiner that also features a rare remix outing from Mountain People’s Rozzo.
True to Luna Records form, this EP from East Londoner, Jacobs, and Berlin resident Costa Rican, Meiner, is all about subtle, trippy grooves. The original of ‘Preserve The Light’ is a dubbed out, low slung and powerfully bass-driven slice of house that wraps itself around a drawn out vocal sample.
Jacobs goes it alone for the second cut on ‘Preserve The Light’, the measured modern houser ‘El Hadu’. Deep, textured and punctuated with a tapestry of strange, out of place sounds it’s a textbook exercise in moody, hypnotic writing.
Rozzo delivers the remix of the title track and does so in his inimitable, heavily shuffled house style. Pacey yet slow burning, it’s yet another piece of fine work from the Swiss producer.
‘Miles Apart’, another solo cut from Jacobs, closes the EP and provides a suitably meaty parting shot that blends old school vox hits with punchy contemporary house vibes.
Another winner for Luna Records, Brett Jacobs & Patrice Meiner ‘Preserve The Light’ EP is released 13th June in digital and vinyl formats.
