Hollen and Raul Mezcolanza team up for the “Meeting Dosage” EP, summing up their skills in ass-shaking grooves.The title track holds the fort down with a might low-end assault, and hypnotic percussion steers the battleship into the trenches. While a distant tribal vibe can be sensed, subtle riffs and clever editing keep us on our toes as the boys bounce happily along.On “Maiden”, quirky, high-pitched beeps set the mood, only to be pummelled by locomotive drums. A rubber-band bassline adds more character to the loopy vibe, and a spoken-word passage gives us just enough time for a breather. (1605 SC, 2012) Beatport here!
Happily cruising along with our eighth installment of our Platform series, we dive deeper into the groove with three cuts guaranteed to shake glutei maximi of any size. Amo, Navas and Maya kick things off with a rubber-band bass and high-pitched stabs over jacking drums, all making way for the obscure vocal that magically appears. Juan Ddd and Johan Dresser pick up from there and opt for an old-school rhythm section to hold everything down. A warped synth gets us in a quirky mode and the Boombox has, indeed, arrived. Raul Mezcolanza closes up with “Follow Me” and its rumbling sub bass. We are entering shuffle central from the get-go and get sucked in by the underwater vibe of the whole affair. (1605 SC, 2012)
