After Dark EP
After a standout collaboration with Huxley last year, essential UK artist Hauswerks is back with two more of his tasteful club weapons.
Hauswerks has been at the sharp end of house and electro for more than a decade now. Appearing on the days finest labels from Hot Creations to material, he has also worked with the hottest talents around from Doorly to Josh Butler. On his own, though, you hear the artist’s very singular take on moving grooves, and that’s exactly the case with both of the brilliantly sci-fi tinged tracks here.
The excellent ‘After Dark’ opens things with steel plated drums and a spooky sense of atmosphere. It’s a high tempo house cut that really gets you into a trance as spacey synths, colourful drums and rugged bass underpins the whole thing. The arrival of some pixelated chords and celestial keys really finish of this cosmic journey in style.
On the flip, ‘Hidden’ is a little funkier, with loopy stabs and rolling drums getting you up on your toes. Vocal sounds are off in the distance and more well-crafted synth work brings plenty of colour and scale to the track so that it really will sweep up the club and take it to the next level.
Hauswerks never misses, and these latest two tracks are another fine example of that.
