Guy From Downstairs – Rodul EP [Curtea Veche]
With a catalogue that includes names like Kirik, Herck, Sepp, Dragosh and Disuasiv, the prestigious UK based record label Curtea Veche presents Guy From Downstairs with “Rodul EP” for its 8th installment.
Victor Ernuteanu aka Guy From Downstairs is a Romanian producer and DJ that released his music with labels such as Robsoul Recordings, Tvir, Body Parts, Tzinah and his own 12” playground, GFD. Well-established artists like tINI, Thomas Melchior, Bill Patrick, Livio & Roby and Herodot, just to name a few, have been playing his music over the years, so it’s easy to say that he is a talented musician. “Rodul EP” reveals 3 original tracks and a remix by Herck designed around house music textures and techy rhythms.
A1 features the title track of this 12”, “Rodul”, a hypnotic and groovy rhythm that sets the theme of the release. Lush and elegant atmospherics, vocal samples and swirling effects combine with the driving percussion as the track builds-up its patterns. A2 titled “Drumul Spre” brings forward a more punchy sound and a faster rhythm while following the main theme. On the flipside, we find “Booty Q”, designed with tech house elements and wavy texture pads, a composition that completes the story of the EP. Herck‘s charming remix of “Drumul Spre” closes the EP, delivering a glitchy and sophisticated re-interpretation of the original track. Definitely a must have for any collector and selector!
