For tech-house fans, seeing a new release land via Sola makes it already a promising prospect. Making his highly anticipated return to the label, UK DJ and producer Vibe Killers has stormed in with a thunderous two-track EP Turned Up. With his origins in the heart of Lancashire, the charismatic producer brings more than twenty years of house music experience to the label, turning heads with his consistent sound.
Staying true to his meld of classic house and experimental grooves, Turned Up fuses rolling melodies with infectiously lively beats for a smooth listening experience. Laden with funky grooves and deep bass lines, titular track "Turned Up" sees oscillating drums as its main beat-maker. Insatiably dance-worthy, Vibe Killers tastefully injects pulsating waves of synths for colour and depth. On "Tattoo Tears", jittering percussions run rampant, underpinned by a heavy low-end for a more tribal feel.
