Proper Trax is proud to present its second 12″ release–PROPER-002 – Split Personalities II–keeping true to its title with another double feature of raw house and techno cuts. Featuring a pair each from Proper Trax newcomers Piltdown Sound, and a reappearance from 001′s Will Azada.
Punching in for the second round, Will Azada brings it with a raw slab of dusty, chord-driven house in the form of “Let’s Get Tight,” followed by the melancholic, dubbed-out tension of its late-night cohort, “Let’s Get Dubbed.” No doubt, the A-side is focused on the house-heads and those who like it deep.
On the flip, and making their wax debut after a series of stellar digital releases and remixes, Piltdown Sound takes you to the depths with the driving, dystopian madness of “Bom.” Following up is a loopy bit of bass-driven, wonky minimalism in “Xanderplatz.” With a knack for thoughtful sound design and production, Piltdown Sound has no qualms dirtying up for Proper Trax and our preferred medium–and we’re pleased to have them on board.
Staying true to its mission, Proper Trax is once again delivering focused, modern house and techno–with a pinch of nostalgic bite–built for the floor-minded listener.
Mastered by Dietrich Schoenemann at Complete USA.
