Unscene Records is set to release the label’s second vinyl release early October 2017, Raz ft. Newshoes’ ‘Think’ EP, backed with remixes from Nici Frida and Guanlong.
Since its conception in 2007, the Texas-based sound collective of Unscene Records has established its presence within the contemporary, underground dance-music community, collaborating with artists and cultural creatives from around the globe, while consistently releasing numerous works in the realm of digital distribution. The new EP, ‘Think’ out in early October 2017, will be the label’s second release on vinyl format.
The original mix of title-track ‘Think’ takes the lead and sees RazV deliver a hazy slice of house fuelled by menacing sub bass drones, murky chords and cavernous percussive shuffles while Newshoes soul-infused vocal stylings instill a further hypnotic feel.
Opening the flip is Nici Frida’s take on ‘Think’, opting for a contrasting stripped-back feel with low-slung, minute percussion running alongside elongated subs, bell like synth melodies and chopped cuts of the original vocal. Guanlong then rounds out the package, delivering a similarly minimal interpretation led by modulating rhythms, spiraling delay effects and hooky vocal stutters.
