Maai Records fires up the next release by inviting seven friends and fellow artists to provide a track each, building a family feel in the early days of the label. Heading up the release we have DJ Bowlcut, Rawdio, Rubinskee, Rassan, Vince Void, and Nørus & DJ Whipr Snirp.
Opener “Vibe” from DJ Bowlcut is a slink house track cruising on sweet melodies, and perfectly weighted drum work. Next on the agenda is “Energy” an aptly named track from, Rawdio, spreading a feel good vibe with this uplifting encounter. Rubinskee steps up to the plate with “Tei” constructed with dusty old school drums, and emotional synth work drawing you in. Rassan delivers a house heater in the form of his track “Luv”, driven dance floor energy, continuously evolving into squelchy acid goodness.
Vince Void’s “Garros” is a slick rolling number from the get go, a rippling organ sets the scene for a playful lift off, accelerating out of the racing blocks. Closing the genre melding VA is Nørus & DJ Whipr Snirp. Their “Crystal Thief” track is over six minutes of pure class, pitched down electro and breaks at its finest. Melt in your mind acid spirals around clean drumwork, before a nostalgic retro synth brings the funk flavour.
