Jewel Kid, Manic Brothers - Road Not Taken EP
Glasgow based Sleaze Records has seen a stream of pumping underground techno tracks since its inception. Label boss Hans Bouffmyhre has signed a refreshing mixture of both established big name artists as well as our future, with some of the best up and coming producers.
This February, we see Jewel Kid make his debut on the label with his “Road Not Taken” EP. The Alleanza label head honcho provides his trademark sound on this production with driving basslines and an intense energy from the get go.
“Road Not Taken” is a no nonsense, belter of a techno track, taking you deep into that peak time late night vibe whilst “The Widow Garden” pairs well showing his more hypnotic side, whilst keeping an edge of tension flowing.
Swedish duo the Manic Brothers are on remix duties for the lead track. Known for their recent releases on Drumcode, including their remix of Moby’s “Go” in 2016, they bring a firing remix, with a punchy rhythmic bass throughout, rounding the EP off nicely.
