- Hooved - Blue Moon (180g vinyl only)
This January will see Amam offer up a vinyl only release from label regular Hooved, entitled ‘Blue Moon’ and comprising four original tracks from the Italian artist.
Producer and DJ Gaetano Vinci’s music has earned him quite the reputation over his ten plus years in the industry with recognition coming from the likes of Mendo, DJ Le Roi, NTFO, Acumen and Florian Kruse throughout his release for labels such as Time Has Changed, Safari Electronique, Apparel and of course his long time musical home, Amam.
With the ‘Blue Moon’ EP Hooved turns in a four original compositions all untitled and numbered one through four. With ‘Untitled_01’ the focus is laid on howling reverb bursts and swirling dub echoes smoothly fluttering around a weighty rhythmic foundation. ‘Untitled_02’ lays sweeping soft chords in the background as the infectious swung percussion drives the record for four and half minutes, subtly evolving and retracting throughout.
Opening the flip side we have ‘Untitled_03’ which takes things in a more upfront house direction with a New Jersey style bass hook, Ghetto vocal licks, 303 acid blips and raw crunchy drums, while ‘Untitled_04’ tips things back into darker Deep Techno realms with hypnotic stab sequences, snaking sub bass grooves and swirling percussive hits to round off the package.
