Originating in Copenhagen, Demnark, but now found between the UK and France, Denise & Karina aka Anëk have enjoyed a sharp curve over the past few years. Having emerged and established themselves whilst representing Steve Lawler’s VIVa imprint, with regular appearances across his ‘Warriors’ parties, the duo have since gone on to release material on the likes of Moon Harbour, Oblack and Gruuv whilst turning in stand out remixes on Solid Groove and Lost Records to name just a few. Add to the mix Bacau based duo GruuvElement’s, whose recent output includes original’s and remixes on NOPRESET, Stereo Productions and Paul’s Boutique, and it’s easy to see why their ‘Zommer’ EP is a highly anticipated release for many this July.
‘Zommer’ opens proceedings in stripped back fashion as Anëk and GruuvElements carefully balance resonant vocal interjections amongst refined toms and warping background atmospherics to create a hypnotic title cut. Next up, ‘Just Drums’ engages rich chords, dubbed out vox’s and rolling drum loops to reveal a smooth laid back production perfect for both the dance floor and the afters, before ‘Alright’ introduces booming kicks, acid tinged bass lines and crisp claps throughout to round out the EP.
Anëk & GruuvElement’s ‘Zommer’ is out on Roush on 16th July 2018.
