Sable Sheep // Upon Burning Skies EP

24 Jun

Sable Sheep Moonharbour

Having become a member of the Moon Harbour agency and label family recently, Germany’s mysterious Sable Sheep is back with a new four track EP that continues to explore his trademark tribal tinged tech house sound with great panache. Sable Sheep is no stranger to success given the widespread deployment of his previous tracks like ‘Painting My Fur’, and that’s a good job, because all of his latest missives are sure-fire dancefloor dynamite.

Upon Burning Skies is the opening track, and one that builds and builds in tension to an invisible peak that will have ravers on the edge of their feet as the tribal male chanting acts like a call to action above bouncing, buoyant kick drums and slick percussive details. A dub version is also included in the package.

Torn To Pieces is another full-blooded groove that will lock you in from the very first rubbery kick and silvery hi hat ringlet. As they roll on next to each other without any friction at all, a knotted bassline and deft little synth stabs add some detail as a warm wind seems to howl in the background. Its stripped back but fills the airwaves and is the sort of physical track its impossible not to get carried away by.

Finally, Thy Suffer is another warm concoction of sound that Sable Sheep fills with rattling drum hits and sandy shakers. Some twitching alien sounds suggest the presence of life amongst the machines and the deep looping kicks help draw you in.

An EP produced with great precision restraint, Sable Sheep knows just how much to add into the without over doing things or allowing things to get stuck in a rut – it’s a perfect balancing act that is designed for maximum impact on the dancefloor.

Here’s some fresh Artifact stuff, words from the dude himself: Drafty EP – It’s been a little while since I released any music, and whilst i’ve been busy working on my next few releases, I wanted to take this opportunity to release some music i’ve been making over the past year. This is an EP of several new tracks, as well as several that never really got placed anywhere. (Artifact SC, 2013)

Eats Everything & Justin Martin // The Gettup

21 Jun

In case you missed it a couple weeks back tune in and grab this banger from Eats Everything and Justin Martin. A text from dirtybird:

Dirtybird’s troublesome twosome, Eats Everything and Justin Martin, join forces once again for a single-track release, ‘The Gettup’. Marking the first official collaborative release on dirtybird for the pair, ‘The Gettup’ channels midsummer mayhem just as much as it does a heaving basement, combining the artists’ penchant for house music frivolity and organ-shaking bass in equal measure. 
Eats and Justin sculpt a sultry house groove from the off, interspersing the slinky sounds with mischievous vocal effects. An initial percussion breakdown paves the way for perhaps the most filthy bass line crunch you ever heard: all bow down to the almighty Gettup! Vivid chord stabs, vocal reverbs and some seriously inspired drum work all pull their weight on this skillful, larger than life club record. Then again, what else would you expect from dirtybird’s first transatlantic bromance collar.
