Cari Lekebusch looks to friend and fellow Swedish techno stalwart Joel Mull for the latest instalment in the unfolding story of H-Productions.
Lekebusch and Mull should need little or no introduction for most, both of them having spent the last two decades shaping the techno landscape with their recordings for labels such as Drumcode, Cocoon, Harthouse and of course H Productions.Their latest musical adventure is a four track EP featuring 2 collaborative works and a solo track each.
We open with "Afrormosia" and launch straight into the first of the two collaborations with a deep and rolling cut that draws on tight drums, stabs and vocal edits to create a superb heads down groove.
Next up Cari & Joel unleash "Mahogany", a pulsating slice of mesmerizing techno with a deep late night feel to it, pitch shifted vocals, relentless rides and the ever present throbbing bass make this an instant winner.
For the third cut Joel Mull takes the reins solo and delivers the excellent "Gmelina", this is a superb percussive workout with real intensity and shows off Mulls production talents to the full.
Finally Cari Lekebusch steps up alone and turns in "Obeche". Again this is a rolling and hypnotic cut that sits perfectly with the accompanying tracks and is certain to find favour with techno and tech house DJs across the board.
