Puxumos – Medusa EP (w. Vlad Caia Remix) [PhonicHouse1 Records]
After an amazing debut on vinyl earlier this year with Vern, Macarie, Dark Syndicate and Techu at the controls, Romanian venture PhonicHouse1 Records returns with its second pressing, featuring two fresh original cuts by Puxumos alongside Vlad Caia on remix duties. Early support arrives from artists like Raresh, Dubtil, Sepp, Nu Zau, Vlad Arapasu and others. With a solid presence in both local and international electronic music scenes, the label constantly delivers top-quality sounds in collaboration with some of the world’s best-known producers as well as rising talents alike, in the form of digital & vinyl releases, showcase events and inspiring podcasts.
Constantin Craciun aka Puxumos developed a strong passion for house, techno and minimal since he was young, always polishing his skills as a selector and producer as time went by. Among the labels he published his music with we find Outpunkt, Far Far Away Records, In Records, 44 CNCPT, Capodopere, Zebra Records, Arupa Music, Unfelde Records, Ensis Black and My First Love Record. For this material, Vlad Caia of SIT joins in with a steaming reinterpretation of the title track, concluding the record with style.
Side A opens with the title track “Medusa”, a low-slung stripped-down cut that undergoes several variations throughout its warm narrative. Here, the focus falls on the drumming patterns as they elegantly lead the bassline and the background pads into a steady-paced journey perfect for warming up the crowd at any party. Following, “Calypso” dives deep into abstract minimal dimensions, revealing a solid tension-building rhythm carefully flavoured with electric synth sweeps, wobbling sounds and a slower tempo. On the flipside Vlad Caia unleashes his swinging remix of A1, taking the original to peak-time by masterfully rearranging the layers and adding extra spiced up elements to the story. A highly recommended 12″ right here for collectors and selectors alike!
