Muninn – Groetzlieb EP [Sobriquet Records]
The last record to be released from Sobriquet comes from the label’s founder Muninn. Titled “Groetzlieb EP”, the 12” features two original tracks and two steaming remixes signed by Giash and local artist RQZ. Reflecting the sound the imprint has been known for, the wax rolls with microhouse and minimal rhythms, concluding an amazing musical adventure.
Established in 2015, Sobriquet Records provided mesmerizing electronic dance music through its publishings, delivered by the likes of Liiebermann, Olvap, Just_Me, Zenk, Bauch, Amin Ravelle and Patraulea. The imprint also collaborated with Denis Kaznacheev, Fabe, Giuliano Lomonte and Venda for incredible remixes. Paul Hughes aka Muninn is a versatile DJ and producer who is also involved in managing Norse Projekt, Brahe and Voynich record labels. His activity spans in many directions, and when it comes to studio time, the music does the talking. With a fantastic discography behind him, as well as being ready to amaze every time he publishes his materials, Muninn delivers this hot wax as a statement to his doings. Listen to the snippets below and get groovy.
Side A opens with “Groetzlieb”, a wobbling hypnotic rhythm, flavoured with minimalistic patterns and subtle lofi textures. The solid bassline and the crisp percussion offer a smooth reaction on the low frequencies. Time to clap your hands! Following, there’s “Muncipality“, a pumping stripped-down rhythm that focuses on its percussion and gets the spice from micro arrangements designed with electric notes. Side B features the remixes of the title track, dispatched by Giash and RQZ. On the first spin, a melodic and deep re-interpretation signed by the Hungarian producer takes the original mix into another eerie dimension, while B2 is more uplifting. Concluding the EP, local artist Raul Moldovan dispatches a solid track, designed with warping effects and intricate glitched cuts, all elegantly blending with a strong beat. Your record bag will thank you for this!
