25th May sees Germany’s Ante Perry team up with Belgium’s Maxim Lany to deliver their debut collaboration EP, I Have Been A Shit, for Tube & Berger / Juliet Sikora’s illustrious Kittball Records.
The excellent 3-track release follows on from previous outings by the duo on labels such as House Grand Cru, Nite Grooves and Maxim’s very own Lany Recordings and sees them deliver one of their best collaborative releases to date.
The EP’s title-track, ‘I Have Been A Shit’, kicks things off serving up a trippy after-hours house groove encompassing minimal-esque drum programming, off-kilter sound effects, twisted TB-303-esque synth patterns and an alluring explicit looped-up vocal sample.
Next, Kittball’s co-owners Tube & Berger step up to deliver an superb re-rub of the title-track, utilising most of the original’s key elements but adding their own stamp on the record by delivering a more driving tech house workout that’s ideal for peak time sets.
‘Groove With It’ follows on and sees Lany and Perry deliver another fine intricate house cut, featuring a twisted percussive melody, a solid one-note bassline, atmospheric textures, techy chord stabs and a looped-up heavily effected vocal sample to conclude the release.
I Have Been A Shit EP is available exclusively via Beatport on 25th May and everywhere else two weeks later.
