Moxy Muzik hits release number 30 & boy its a big one! A new EP from Glasgow’s underground hero Tiptoes. These are tunes that label head Darius Syrossian has been dropping for a while out on tour, with all who hear them desperate to get a copy. They finally arrive with a remix from lady of the moment, and PIV associate Kellie Allen.
Tiptoes is a well respected figure who keeps a low profile. He doesn’t do social media, but over the last 15 years his famously widescreen sets and top tunes on labels like Hustller Trax and SlothBoogie have made him a real favourite.
Opener ‘Cuss Tomato’ is a brilliantly catchy and slinky house groove. Think Kerri Chandler when he has his foot on the gas. The vocal is full of soul and the seductive chord work brings warmth to the lively drums. It’s a classy party starter, make no mistake.
The equally fresh ‘Put Sum Down On It’ is another irresistible house cut with timeless vocals. The smooth drums and rich bass bounce up and down and lock you in for the ride. Both of these are sure fire and stylish winners.
Kellie Allen has signed to the influential PIV and played all the cult labels shows around Ibiza and at clubs like Fabric. She is a long time friend of Darius and really comes through here. Her take on ‘Put Some Down On It’ is more pumped up, with punchy, rubbery kicks and busy synths zipping about the mix, while the vocal stabs become more fiery.
