Purp006
Beatport Release: 15.04.13
Full Release: 29.04.13

For our sixth release we turn to two of our own artists. Harry Wolfman and Jouhl have enjoyed a serious start to the year, Harry with his Lost My Dog EP that was widely acclaimed, and Jouhl with his haunting late night anthem ‘Voudou’. These two already came together with their track ‘Session Tape’ featuring on our various artists album, and we snapped up these tracks late last year and set about the release.

The title track, ‘96 affair, rides on a swelling synth and a startling low end. Complimented with sharp percussion and tight, clever vocal samples, intricate percussion keeps you guessing for the duration and this sure has been a favourite in Purp & Soul artist’s sets of recent months. An energetic track that sets the pace for the EP.

High Fidelity is up next and continues the trend, a spoken drug topic vocal leads in a very much low frequency rumble. Spiral echos flutter over tough percussion and the tempo isn’t exaggerating but complimenting. An organ synth lead washes over towards the latter half to the track, the bass very much leading this track throughout.

James Welsh we were very excited to join this remix package, having been fans of his music for a long time. He takes a 707 base and adds a rolling sub, sharp claps and snippets of the vocal ride on the side-chained throb beneath. A synth bass flutter breaks up the sound about half way through. A real jam.

Friend Within steps up with his trade mark sound, makes more use of the vocal here and takes the tempo up. Peak time goodness with accented toms and claves. The chunky bass tears into the mix on the trop. This mix drips dance floor energy, it’s what he’s known for!

Purp006 is out on 15.04.13. We hope you enjoy it.
