Mongo - Carbon Freeze
10 / January / 2017
High Tide Recordings co-founders Mongo deliver the labels second release in the form of two rumbling cuts this February.
Mongo is Dan Reid aka Sleeperhold and Gary Bennetton – two of the minds behind High Tide’s event series and newly launched imprint. ‘Carbon Freeze’ marks an exciting production debut for the Southampton based duo, however as DJs the pair have years of experience supporting many of the upper echelons of house and techno including Carl Cox, Seth Troxler, Jamie Jones, Sasha and Dubfire.
Crashing hats and a sultry low-end form ‘Carbon Freeze’ as energetic stabs and atmospheric synths generate a compelling groove. ‘Santa Carla’ is more intricate in comparison using tight percussion and infectious melodies for a mesmerising aesthetic. Geared for the dancefloor, both productions have picked up early support from the likes of Hot Since 82, James Zabiela, Cristoph and Alan Fitzpatrick.
Mongo ‘Carbon Freeze’ drops on High Tide Recordings on 27th February 2017.
