Manitoba EP’ is the debut release from Sam Russo, a 23 year old emerging techno talent from Southend-on-Sea. Russo has been developing his own take on house and techno and his Dj abilities have been rewarded with a residency for Mr C, at his Superfreq night in Southampton as well as regular gigs at London venues such as SeOne, Pacha and the Aquarium, now it’s time for him to step up as a producer and show what he has to offer.
The EP kicks off with the original of ‘Fuck my MPC’, a deep and pulsating house cut built around tight beats, deep keys and some rather risqué spoken word vocals. First of the ‘Fuck my MPC’ remixes comes from Cecille and Tsuba artist Huxley who shows why he is such hot property at the moment with an incredible slow mo house reworking that is deep soulful house personified.
Next up we have the uber talented engineer/producer/artist Saytek who takes a tough and hypnotic approach with his wonderful techy bass driven remix.
The second original track comes in the form of ‘Manitoba’, a warm, pad drenched slab of deep house that oozes class from every bar and shows incredible musical maturity for this young producers debut release. The two remixes of ‘Manitoba’ are supplied by Canadian electronic music hero Nitin who delivers a stripped yet wonderfully organic sounding slice of house and UK based dub techno producer Youandewan who turns in a truly sublime slice of deep and mesmeric tech house.
To round the package off there is a final mix of ‘Fuck my MPC’ from Nick Jun who provides a superb alternative version that draws on discordant FX, percussive loops and bumpin bass to create a solid piece of house.
