There are certain artists out there that are very good at keeping you on your toes. The sort of artists whose discography you wouldn't be able to let play through at a friends house party. With Budapest based Jay Lumen, you never know whether it's going to be an Ibiza poolside house roller or a straight up techno stomper. His latest EP Elysium, released on 100% Pure, brings us the best of both worlds.
Opening track of the release "Street Stuff" is an infectious summer groove that ties together classic elements of house music. Looped vocals and stabbed 90's style keys instantly turn the record into a party anthem while the bass line demands skimpier swimwear and colder beverages. Second track of the EP "Elysium" is a huge anthemic techno record and the evil twin of the release. Huge piercing synths confront the growls that lurk beneath the main body of the track while pounding kick drums and distant echoed vocals create a truly intense atmosphere. You can purchase this stunning Jekyll and Hyde-esque EP from Beatport now.
