Following the success of Robert Dietz & Tuccillo’s ‘Kushtraxx’ EP which saw major support from the likes of The Revenge, Doc Martin, DJ Sneak, Matthias Tanzmann & Sebo K the ever-impressive Berlin-based Holic Trax imprint returns this January with UK house stalwart Burnski and four punchy originals.
Since bursting onto the scene in 2005 James Burnham aka Burnski has been making waves ever since with a incredible back-catalogue of work that runs across labels such as Real Tone, Saved, 2020 Vision, Poker Flat & Hot Creations to name a few. ‘The Hours’ EP is another sublime deliverance from Burnham, dishing up four deep & dynamic house cuts peppered with Detroit & Chicago influences.
EP opener and title track ‘The Hours’ is a no-nonsense beat down worked over thumping bass & shifting percussion while ‘Visions’ is a gritty off kilter cut that bubbles over rippling drums, oscillating tones and recurring vocals.
On the B-side ‘Movement’ is a groovy record cultivated over thrashing bass, stripped-back drums and arpeggiated chords. For final offering on the vibrant single Burnksi laces the soulful vocals of Beckford over the frisky rhythms and infectious groove of ‘Time’ to finish things off in a raw yet lively fashion.
