Dubai-Based Audio Tonic Records continue their explorations into disco-infused deepness with the ʻMy Loveʼ EP from Urban Torque regular Seva K. Seva K, or Vsevolod Khalepo as his passport states, has a less-is-more discography and won countless fans for his light, airy productions that focus on melody and funk. Much like the likes of Spirit Catcher (who appeared recently on Audio Tonic themselves), the Russian producer employs real hooks and does so with aplomb.
ʻMy Loveʼ leads the EP with mid-tempo beats and lazy, filtered synths that flirt with the resonant basses and familiar vocal samples. Loose and slow yet squarely aimed at the dancefloor, ʻMy Loveʼ is a pure summer groove. Lithuanian duo Downtown Party Network, known for impeccable output on Eskimo, nudge the tempo and firm up the drums on the track but keep the breezy feel intact. ʻFallingʼ gently builds from shakers and nearly-there keyboards into yet another rousing discoid cut riddled with chirpy arpeggios, spacious snares and boxy ʻ80s bass licks while Roberto Rodriguez serves up an incredibly weighty warehouse version. Out 3rd April.
