Behind the wheel for the next chapter of the Superlux Records story is label co-founder, N-GYNN. The sixth release on the vinyl imprint sees the UK producer return to the label with four energetic encounters designed for the club. “The Heavens” EP will see the light of day Spring 2022, and will undoubtedly be welcomed by the open arms of ravers and tastemakers alike.
The opening track “Renaissance” is driven by a warm sub heavy bass, being teased throughout by mechanical twists and turns, and light acid tinges. As the track progresses you soon find yourself immersed amongst dance floor frenzy. The A2. and title track “The Heavens” is crammed with glitchy drum work, and otherworldly textures as the title aptly explains. All of the elements are perfectly weighted, each of them leaving enough room for the next, an elastic bass continues to propel the track as trippy vocal samples flash in and out, giving this one the Superlux effect.
Taking up the first half of the B side is an intelligently arranged body of work that goes by the name of, “Alma”. An almost eight minute trip with depth and emotion, gliding through the blissful realms of house and techno. Closing the EP is “Hypno”, chunky and nostalgic breakbeat sounds reminding you exactly where the label comes from. Classy UK sounds ready to do some damage.
The explosive body of work comes hot off the heels of LVCA’s “6ix Tales” EP, which was incredibly well received. Superlux is a platform in fine form, looking to evolve further in the coming years, propelling innovative sounds to the many.
