After the two Various Artists’ releases Threads decided to come back to the general formula – one artist, hand-stamped vinyl and 4 beauties inside (two on each side). This time is mpeg’s turn and the colour of the stamp will be orange. That’s, probably, the whole general info you’ll need.
It was very hard to decide, which track to pick from the A-side – both have a great potential for ruining some soles on the dancefloor. But I picked “Broken Jug”. Starting as a broken piece with all those bigroom echoes, later it turns into something on the edge of an early morning Italian house tune from the early 90s and an English progressive house example from the late 90s. It balances perfectly between those two countries, but I still think, that we here are having a bit more of the Italian vibe. Maybe, a pinch more.
“Bite The Bullet”, the opener of the record really does the same as our premiere of today, but with leaning into that progressive territory. With the funky percussions. “Whereabout” from the B-side’s opening is a slow, but very solid roller, that will sound just as great if you decide to speed it up for a bit in the club, as it does at its original speed. And the final one on the record is “Time & Zone”, which gives us a bit more of that funky tribal vibe with its drums and melodies here.
