Bristol-based Eject Records return with their second release, molding slick minimalist house formulas across a four-track EP.
The premiered B1 ‘Alright’ from Sambo. forms around a confident bassline, weaving between intricate textural work in the high end. Soft chords surface in unison with a palate of light and airy percussion, sculpting a satisfying and spacious atmosphere that gifts space for the moreish combination of skippy hats and a funk riddled bassline to lead the charge.
Sounds develop patiently throughout the track, gradually revealing luscious vocal blankets meeting with plucky stab sounds resting low in the mix. Intricate percussive parts host a teasing breakdown driven by clever reverb work, sifting elements neatly in and out of the mix.
Influences from Sambo’s ear for drum and bass and dubstep grow evident throughout the EP, with swung, textural patterns and clever sequences introducing new sections of arrangements.
Pairing this with contemporary influence from the likes of London’s Fuse, whose residents have showcased at Eject’s events, a fresh approach to the realms of 4/4 reduced house comes to fruition across this EP.
Four original cuts weave between a variance of moods, shaping nimble basslines around punchy percussions, each maintaining dance floor friendly vibe.
