Sepp – Anglais Hotel [Sono Unica]
Swedish venture Sono Unica returns with its third pressing, inviting Romanian artist Sepp to deliver four amazing minimal tracks in the form of “Anglais Hotel” EP. Initially established as a podcast series, the concept grew into a successful electronic music showcase, bringing something unique to the Nordics when it comes to house and techno-infused events. As a record label, Sono Unica released the first material in 2019 with Costin Rp at the controls, followed in 2020 by an inspiring material signed by Cosmjn.
Teo Bajdechi aka Sepp needs no introduction, as he’s one of the most iconic figures representing the rominimal scene and beyond. Throughout his career he collaborated with numerous artists either behind the decks, in the studio, as a promoter or as a label manager. His latest productions reflect a matured, polished sound and were published by labels like Kiria Records, Rawax, Neostrictly, Windmuhle and Botanic Minds. This EP makes no exception so let’s dive in and explore the tracks in more detail.
On Side A we first find “South Side” which opens the material with an organic steady-paced rhythm flavoured with a solid bassline and playful arpeggios. The cut exhibits a progressive narrative and the breakdowns elegantly highlight the background movements. Following, “Sodermalm Island” drops a more electric sound designed with driving breaks, groovy complementary insertions and smooth vocals that evoke old-school disco vibes.
Side B opens with “Langholmen Area”, a bouncy tale of racing rhythms, jacked to the max, like a slot machine with infinite outcomes. Here, the spacious breakdowns focus on warped vocal cuts while the sequencing variations make this piece perfect for any kind of dancefloor. “Malaren River” closes the EP with a distinct minimalistic construction based on syncopated drumming patterns, twisted effects and warm, evolving textures. A highly recommended 12″ right here!
