Krummstoff – In A Fog EP

At pretty much the opposite end of the spectrum from the Stonebridge single below, here we have a three-track slab of deep, groovy tech-house from Ashot Babayan, AKA Krummstoff.

In A Fog itself is groovelicious in the extreme: it's got all the bounce and swagger of left coast house, yet echoes in its instrumentation/use of sounds/structure of dub techno as well. It should, accordingly, move any more educated dancefloor that likes it deep.

It then gets remixed by Da Funk, who by day is boss of the excellent Acryl label: his take on In A Fog is more minimal, hypnotic and rolling, and just cries out to be heard on a big system for maximum effect. And rounding out the EP we have In A Ditch, which is another deep dancefloor workout, again with that dubbed-out kinda feel.

Quality stuff all round, then.

Out: This week. So go seek!

About: The In A Fog EP is only the eighth release from Low Flow Records, who are based in Armenia and say they're "mostly oriented at putting out cutting-edge deep house, deep tech and tech house vibes, spreading around the full palette of what is called deep." Sounds like a good plan to me! The label's co-owned by Babayan and Garry Mkrtchyan, and to HEAR THESE TRACKS (and the rest of their catalogue) you can visit their MySpace for now - the actual proper website is still in development.
