“Hair Of The Dog. Sometimes a beer or a glass of white wine is the best cure for a hangover. It’s no coincidence that Knyazev’s latest work on Ambrosia Records has this title, the track is perfect for the afterhours, to cure that hangover from the root and let the dancefloor have a groovy cooldown. A hypnotic bassline with catchy melodies, deep pads and textures evolving into meditational state breakdowns.”Ambrosia Records
The title track “Hair Of The Dog” opens the EP with a steady-paced minimal sound, flavoured with warm and spacious background atmospheres, groovy chords and shuffling hi-hats that can make anyone start dancing in seconds while completely immersing themselves in the music. Ghertz’s Remix follows up with an equally energetic journey, keeping to the deep mood while adding extra layers like a mysterious vocal sample and subtle, reverberating effects. Next up, “Overhead The Albatross” drops a twisted tale, powered by breakbeat rhythms and playful electric tones. Nieto’s Remix closes the EP with style, rendering a deep and techy vibe enhanced by a grouching bassline, distorted vocals and a catchy four-to-the-floor approach to the beat. Listen to the snippets below.
