Premiere: B2 – Chris Stussy & Toman – Boiling Point [LOCUS002]

Following on from Fuse London’s new offshoot label LOCUS almost immediate sell-out first edition they return with the groovy rolling 4-track ‘Timewriter’ EP from Chris Stussy and Toman.

Going in a slightly different vein to the rest of the EP our pick of ‘Boiling Point’ is a much straighter house groove as opposed to the more cosmic rolling tech-house featured previously in the record. A relentless bassline and some nicely crafted synth stab keep things rolling until the breathy vocal comes into view. Joining in later in the mix is subtle spacey synth blips and of course the precision drum programming which give the track its incessant groove.

As intimated earlier the rest of the EP has a bit of a different vibe and beginning with A1 and title track ‘Timewriter’ which is a much more ethereal but still retains the funk of the bassline found elsewhere in the record. The filtering bassline and specks of 303 give some outrageous movement and stunning depth to the track, so expect this to be a big track for the lads that made and everybody else in that realm of minimal tech-house.

A2 ‘Serendipity’ treads similarly airy and upbeat territory but employs some nicely filtered vocals and of course fluttering synths that only add to the spacey vibe of the release. Completing the release is B1 ‘Zerlon’ where the onus is on the groove, with licks of acid growling up from the bottom of the track and a blissed-out pad interlude midway through this will also do great things on the dancefloor.
