Mancini, Tijn – Wogglebug EP [Vuew]
The American record label Vuew returns with “Wogglebug EP”, a groovy three-tracker signed by Mancini, Tijn and Leftback Records’ co-owner Dudley Strangeways on remix duties. Designed with raw rhythms, lively synth work and vibrant dynamics, the 12” has all it takes to be a true dancefloor-oriented tool that selectors will love playing and people will love dancing on it. Based in San Diego, California, the imprint is firmly focused on releasing top-quality contemporary house and techno music, with artists like Meza, Chklte, John Manhard, Tito Mazzetta, David Gtronic, Iuly.B and Laurent Ci so far contributing to its discography.
British DJ and producer Tijn is well-known for his intense activity in the international electronic music scene for quite some time now. His music has been published by Memoria Recordings, EWax, Overall Music, Curtea Veche, Moss Co, as well as by his eponymous label and In Haus Wax, which he founded in 2012. For this material, he joins forces with French artist Mancini, who operates Hedzup Records and Mancini Records, while other collaborations include MO-OB, Bit Music, Signatune Records, What NxT and Deep Sabaudian Noise.
On Side A we first find “Kobra”, a very engaging and funky composition characterised by solid percussive elements, a wobbling bassline and carefully crafted pads, effects and build-ups. The complementary modulated synth patterns sound like electric voices, adding extra flavour to the whole. Following, Dudley Strangeways‘ remix reveals a twisted, stripped-down rhythm which incorporates hypnotic background textures and various glitched micropatterns. The pulsating bassline elegantly blends with the other layers, creating a thumping vibe, perfect for peak-time moments at any party. Side B is reserved for the title track “Wogglebug”, a crispy and swinging cut focused on its trippy effects and groove-steady arrangements. The grainy and slightly glitched percussive layers which flow at around 126 BPM leave enough room for the phat bassline to stand out, while the adjacent structures remain minimalistic yet very alluring. A must-have for any selector and collector right here!
