London-based duo Sucasa shape their first Bandcamp release.
The UK selectors have been making waves across the capital for a number of years, with frequent showcases at the likes of Fabric London and 93 Feet East.
Touching on a variety of influences drawn from jazz, funk and the infamous London garage scene, the pair have formed a chunky housey sound packed with soul. Slinky grooves and warm punchy basslines form much of their higher energy music, as heard in a recent remix for Biles & Louis White.
Gigs have taken them heavily across the UK and overseas, featuring alongside the likes of S.A.M, Chris Stussy, and Tristan Da Cunha bringing the garagey heat. Following a series of in-demand remixes and free downloads on their SoundCloud page, the duo has now created a home for their music in the Bandcamp series DUALITY.
Exploring a fruity breakbeat rhythm in the premiered ‘Luvin’, the duo tap into uplifting realms in this seductive cut. Slick breaks slot satisfyingly between the snare, before welcoming a smooth organ bassline filled with hope. It’s the strain of versatile, stripped back house that would soundtrack a glorious open air setting, just as comfortably as the early hours of a basement club.
Sequences are slick and unique, fizzing hats into the mix with a confident flair, destined to bring smiles to the dance floor. Sultry vocals complement the groove with a subtle presence in the mix, fluttering over lush, ethereal pads floating overhead.
‘Pinky’ maintains the optimism in the EP’s A1. Meandering down a more tech-house avenue, stunning reverb drenched vocals warp around a tight bassline lighting up the room.
Ahead of the debut release, the duo have just announced a free EP on their label Bandcamp, featuring two funky jams ‘Kingdom’ and ‘Fort Augustus’ exploring further into their diverse tastes.
Given the prolific form in both productions and regular DJ sets, the launch of DUALITY is an exciting prospect for future music to come from Sucasa.
