House duo Mescal Kids make their first big impression of 2020 with their ‘Friends EP’ on Kittball, featuring three red hot collaborative club tracks.
This London pair is right at the heart of the current scene and has been since they first got together two decades ago. They are big hits whenever they play iconic parties like Elrow – or release on the famous party’s in house label – and are frequently found in the higher end of the Beatport Charts thanks to a steady stream of solid sounds on Roush, Under No Illusion and 303 Lovers.
Opening the release, Italian Luigi Rocca joins forces with the pair for ‘Otherwise Then’: a more stripped back cut building through chattery percussive patterns, pumping bass and slick drum loops that suck you right into the menacing groove. Featuring KMS associate Killed Cassette, ‘Tell Me’ is a hammering house jam complete with woodpecker hits, fiery old school vocals and explosive synths that are all designed to blow up the club.
Finally, ‘The Power’ with Someguy is another block-rockin’ house tune with solid kicks and devastating synth stabs. Big diva vocals and a retro bassline really mean this one will bring the party.
Mescal Kids ‘Friends EP’ drops on Kittball on 30th January 2020.
