Tom Kutsche turns his kickin’ up dust party into a label with an EP from George Davis and a remix from Kai Alcé. A squelchy riff and deep bass guitar introduce swinging piano keys and classic disco vocals in George’s’ aptly named ‘Marimba Disco’, with the percussion instrument taking centre stage throughout. Kai Alcé remixes the track, amplifying the funk with dubbed hits and ceaseless rhythm, showcasing his wide range of influences that span Detroit, Atlanta, Haiti, and New York.
‘Ebunya’ then proceeds with a tough set of drums, resonant bass and quirky keys while a vocal leaves its mark, before ‘Budoshida’ closes things with drums, the jazzy strum of a guitar and more smooth vocals.
George Davis’ ‘Ona EP’ is a soulful release, probably ideal for at-home listening, low-lit bars and sunset views. Initially started in 2021 as a techno party in Berlin, kickin’ up dust turned heads hosting artists with a funkier edge to them such as Maurice Fulton, DJ Deep, and Roy Davis Jr..
Now, the brand launches their label leg dusting off hidden tracks deep from the vaults of artists, starting with this EP by the German-American artist. The Offenbach/Atlanta-based artist’s style covers anything from soulful and deep house to disco and broken beat with his tracks released on labels like Saft, UK Basic and Highsteppin’.
