Sublease Music puts out another release, this time handing the floor to Markus Homm, Brad Brunner and AG Swifty. Markus is a veteran of the house and tech scene, and apparently a regular at some of the scene’s foundational venues such as Berghain. His collaborators might have less experience, but bring a whole new flavour to the cooking pot.
Markus Homm: “Connected not only through being part of the same booking agency in Romania (Cyclic), but also through the love for grooving underground Music, we ended up in the Studio In Bucharest for a few days working on some music. This is the outcome of the session, grooving percussions with the rolling bassline and warm chords and stabs."
‘The Big Con’ is a driving slice of stripped down house - the jittery percussion adds a tense edge to the hypnotic groove. The track maintains its energy throughout, with some nice variations and shifting melodic elements.
‘Sleeping Dogs’ is also on the paired down vibe, beginning with a tough kick that eventually opens up into a warm, deep roller.
