Big tunes on the latest Banx EP from super tech house producer, Jey Kurmis, on Manchester based label, Kaluki Musik, out Dec 19th.
2016 has been yet another great year for UK artist Jey Kurmis with releases and remixes on the likes of Hot Creations, Moon Harbour, Leftroom and Viva and now closes out the year with a release for Kaluki Musik. Amongst a steady stream of releases via some of contemporary house music’s most revered imprints, this year also saw Kurmis play DC10 for Paradise and shows during Sonar Barcelona, Amsterdam Dance Event and many more showcasing Jey’s current prominence.
Across the ‘Banx’ EP Jey Kurmis delivers his typically frenzied house style and the title-cut takes the lead with an amalgamation of processed vocal lines, a snaking bass groove, sporadic snare rolls and tension building pad sequences. ‘Margot’ follows and employs stripped-back percussion alongside short bass licks, choppy vocal layers and resonant synth whirrs to create a heady hypnotic workout.
The third and final original from Kurmis comes next, entitled ‘Peachey’ and retaining a similarly robust, sparse rhythmic drive while soft synth stabs and vocal murmurs ebb and flow throughout the groove. Recent beatport chart toppers and residents of the Kaluki events Solardo then close out the package, turning in a more direct dance-floor focused interpretation, extracting snippets from the original number and layering them alongside their own raw rhythmic style.
Jey Kurmis ‘Banx’ EP is out on Kaluki Musik 19th December 2016.
