Pră Jescu – Ob8 EP [MUM Recordings]
After a successful first release signed by Xandru, Ibiza-based MUM Recordings returns with its second pressing, a steaming four tracker dropped by Pră Jescu. Titled “Ob8 EP”, the 12” is designed with various influences, from minimalistic house rhythms to deep soundscapes and acid elements.
The team behind MUM is well-known for the events they host on the sunny island all year round, inviting many DJs and producers to perform. They also host one of the favourite parties in the winter calendar, remaining active off-season as well. Their vision of modern electronic dance music focuses on quality, so expect only the best coming from their side.
Prăjescu Ciprian Andrei aka Pră Jescu is a young DJ and producer born in Cernavodă close to Constanța, Romania and currently residing in Turin, Italy. He loves to mix in order to create a special feeling on the dancefloor through eclectic selections. As he developed this passion early in life, he’s still focused on exploring music from the past and the present, at the same time. His musical background incorporates house, techno, minimal, experimental and ambient music. As a producer, he worked with labels like Complatt, Hoary, Sanguina Records and Wavetech Limited.
Side A opens with the title track “Ob8”, a deep and spacious composition infused with eerie effects and micro patterns, a solid bassline and steady-paced percussion. The cut offers intricate variations, yet maintains a well-balanced rhythm. Next, there’s “Moldoveneste” bringing forward a strong acidic sound built with wobbling modulations and a nearly syncopated broken beat. There’s a funky feeling embedded into this one, making it sound more like a DJ tool, ready to be used for complex transitions.
On the flip side, we first find “Shiprien Si Pianu” an uncommon and ethereal sound flavoured with exotic textures, alluring vocal samples and candid piano notes. The track elegantly flows into the closing cut, “Hydra”, a smooth piece that returns to the deep sound introduced by the title track, completing the circle.
