After an incredible summer that saw the Diynamic label release more big hits from boss Solomun and hot talents Adriatique, as well as hold down their fantastic outdoor parties in Ibiza, the Hamburg house stable is unleashing a brand new series of four Various Artists Eps called “Four To The Floor” – Four EPs with four tracks each, focussing on the dancefloor.
After a fine run of EPs, this new series of Various Artists releases from Diynamic comes to a close with the fourth and final edition. First to go is Malandra Jr, an Italian who has popped up on Cocoon and Entail before now. His lush track ‘Infinity’ journeys to the end of the universe with lots of moody melodies and haunting chords that will do wonders to your mind on the dancefloor. Handshake is next and his excellent ‘Gravity’ track is a slow pomp through big expansive bass notes, radiant chords and glassy melodies and ghoulish voices that are dark in a most beautiful way.
On to the second half and Zaki then offers ‘Heart Never Lies’, a crisp and twitchy bit of house with very studiously crafted bass notes that are rich and musical. The track sort of suspends you in-between galaxies as stars and spaceships shoot past you. Finally, Austrian Martin Kremser gets nice and physical and bumpy with his ‘Curious’ cut. Emotional keys, lovely synths and groaning bass all make this another standout cut from what is an excellent EP.
