Mallorca s Dakpa has been on a roll since AMAM released his debut EP last fall. He has contributed to several compilations, including AMAM s own Hand Out series, Kina Music s Fade to K pt. 3 and Wizz Vinyl s Sonar Sampler 2014, plus EPs for labels like District Raw and Serial Number 849. But AMAM gets the honor of issuing his first own vinyl release, the Distres EP. The opening title track is an exercise in jacking minimalism, vibrant tech house with just the essentials, but more than enough to get the floor moving. Then, Ademus gets into a slightly more colorful groove, with tropical percussive interplay and some whooping voice for a humanistic accent (is that Brigitte Bardot?). On the flip, Virgo gives a modern update to the frenzy of acid house. the title alone brings Virgo Four to mind. On that note, this one is an effective tool for warping minds and evoking spastic dance moves. Finally, the dependable Gaetano Vinci a.k.a. Hooved reinterprets Ademus with a heavy dose of melodic funk and symphonic washes, making the track into an entirely new creation. But wait, there is more! Our prodigious producer gave us two additional tracks, Marius and Evolution, that were not able to fit on the vinyl, but we are happy to share them with you exclusively as digital downloads, rounding out the release in truly multifaceted form.
