The irrepressible Mat Playford is back with his second release for PAPER.
The Inflection Point EP was written especially for to launch his Ibithan – We Love party this week setting up this summers Space residency.
Mat is one of house music’s emerging talents with his productions hitting the sweet spot for DJs such as Sasha and Paul Woolford. His debut release for us ‘Tuning Issues’ received a five star review in January’s DJ Mag nailing peak time floors from San Paulo to Lisbon to London.
The Inflection Point EP nods to the golden age of house music when Tribal Records reigned supreme and PAPER was but a glint on the Hard Times dancefloor; everything tied together with 00s production and know-how.
Advice in Café Sydney is deep, techy and swinging with a dirty off-kilter bass holding down an analogue riff that works a killer groove.
The Breath has an Erik Kupper sound to it that is deep soulful garage and sounds like a 7am moment on the Med, especially as the synth solo does it’s thing.
Finally Inflection Point is deeeeep and sparse but with balearicy washes tied round a tough and driving bottom end. Phoar!
Jim Stanton – Horse Meat Disco- “Great track deep n groovy. support!”
