Moan Recordings welcome the man of the moment Ray Mono for a new EP that features two more of his superbly slick house tracks, this time with a remix from the Moxy Musik label boss Darius Syrossian. Mono has been knocking it out of the park of late thanks to big tunes on the likes of Moxy Muzik and hedZup Records and he has a stripped back but full flavour sound that is perfect for heady crowds and sweaty basements.
Opener What Would You Do is on well programmed drums that are funky and neat, underpinned by an infectious baseline and finished with some slinky synths and vocals that bring the groove. It is high class dancing music with plenty of flavour.
Darius Syrossian then steps up to remix with a more intense remix that is rippled with late night chords and neon pads as well as a soulful vocal. As ever with this artist, the grooves are undeniable.
The Get Down from Ray Mono then gets busy, with skipping beats and icy hi hats all making for an uplifting house cut that has warm, diffusing chords and plenty of sci-fi details that place it firmly in the future.
