Hülsken & Heuvel – Moodswing EP

Deep, tech and prog elements combine on this two-tracker from Dutch label Modern Playground.

Moodswinger is the housier of the two tracks and my fave, a chugging number with sharp, crisp beats, nagging synth stabs and an insistent one-note organ drone throughout… a jackin' cut for those small-hours moments when your floor is properly in the zone. B-side DDM One is a slightly techier affair, with driving 4/4 kicks and claps providing the rhythmic atop which ride all manner of moody synth squiggles that are eventually joined by some jaunty pianos.

Apparently Hülskel & Heuvel function primarily as a live act; on this evidence, theirs should be a show that's worth looking out for.

Out: This week
