Amsterdam’s Luuk Van Dijk landed on Jamie Jones’ Hottrax this month with ‘The First Time EP’. Luuk has also released on the likes of Hot Creations, Solid Grooves, and his own Dark Side Of The Sun label.
‘The First Time’ leads the release with acid lines and drums featuring vocals from Newcastle singer/songwriter and Hot Creations affiliate Mizbee, whose previous collaborators include the likes of Jansons, Maxinne, Supernova, and more.
‘Jus’ Listen’ follows, opening with pads and percussion, with piano chords and low-end keeping up momentum. ‘Up North’ sees an amalgamation of glitched-out FX and bass meet atmospherics for a trippy late-night house jam, before ‘Don’t Mess’ closes the EP with synth hits, rolling basslines, and vocal chops.
