Mafu Nakyfu – Lagany Stress EP

This one comes from a producer who's never featured on here before – a young Slovenian called Mafu Nakyfu, to be precise. And on a brand new label, GreenTech Records, to boot – exciting times! Actually, though, if you check out Mr Nakyfu's Facebook page, you'll see he already has a musical pedigree that belies his tender years (he's 24). It shows on this EP, because there's something here to tempt electronic music lovers of many persuasions.

The original is a chuggy and relatively upbeat tech-houser, with a single sax parp nagging away throughout. Alvron Medina's remix is still in a tech-house vein but more towards the house end of the equation; the Kay Kay Deep Remix is in a slo-mo kind of vein and also informed heavily, I'd suggest, by cosmic disco and other general analogue freakery; Ron Costa serves up a more overtly house mix that then goes all dark and techy towards the end, while Ivan Komlinovic's mix is straight-up big, driving, proggy techno.

Of all those, it's probably Medina's rub I'm feeling the most, but as I said there's something here to appeal to lots of jocks. A fine start for the label.

Out: This week

About: GreenTech are based, like Mafu Nakyfu himself, in Slovenia. But they also live on Soundcloud as well…
