Amsterdam’s Mason prepares a four-track release designed with all night sets in mind on his Animal Language label titled ‘Chronology’. Founding Animal Language in 2009, the label has been Mason’s main platform for releasing his productions when he hasn’t been making appearances on Defected, Bunny Tiger, Island Records and Kittball. 


As a DJ who loves playing and programming a whole night of house music, ‘Chronology’ sees Mason craft a collection of tracks for various stages of a party. 

An infectious bassline and serene chords set the tone in ‘11pm’ before chopped-up soulful vocals erupt from the mix, making way for ‘1am’ with its intense groove generated by organic drums, shuffling hats, claps and a mesmerising vox.

Getting darker as you venture later into the night, ‘5am’ introduces intricate percussion and techy elements that forge a moody aesthetic with plenty of groove, until ‘7am’ concludes the release using vibrant synths and a heady hook.

Animal Language will also be joining Loulou Records and Bunny Tiger for a collaborative event at Club Up at ADE on 18 October. The line-up will feature Sharam Jey, Kolombo, Loulou Players, Mason and more.

The ‘Chronology’ EP drops on Animal Language on 20 October 2017.
