After a brief time away from releasing music in 2017 to refresh his ears, house artist Argy is back in 2018 with this debut EP on Play It Say It. Over the last decade, Greek DJ/producer Argy has been releasing a variety of sounds under a number of different aliases. His given name has always been reserved for house and techno though, appearing on labels like Bedrock, BPitch, Ibadan, and most recently The Martinez Brothers’ Cuttin’ Headz imprint.
Those releases, along with four albums, have made the These Days label boss known within the underground scene.
The title track ‘The Way of Kings’ opens up the EP with seven minutes of house. Powerful kicks drive it along as synths bring real drama and tension up top.
Switching up the mood is ‘Los Animales’, which has a busier, Afro tinged groove and tribal percussive energy.
Last of all, ‘Move Like A Panther’ featuring the New Yorker in Berlin, Elbee Bad, shows another side to Argy. It’s a house cut with plenty of jacking Chicago spirit. The drums hit hard, the synths are trippy with a dark bassline and spoken word.
It’s out 22 June.
