Suruba‘s first release of 2013 is finally here, and who better to deliver the goods this time around than the prime protagonists themselves, Los Suruba.
The duo have enjoyed a pretty spellbinding past twelve months, having released on a host of seminal imprints such as Get Physical, Defected, Stil Vor Talent, Darkroom Dubs, Eklektisch, Mexa Records and their own offshoot imprint, Suruba X. Their best, however, is still yet to come, with their next EP on the Los Angeles based Culprit imprint very much indicative of the fact.
But now, almost a year after their last release on Suruba, the ‘Mantis’ EP, they’re back on home soil. While the latter garnered positive reactions and chartings from the likes of Jamie Jones, Anja Schneider and Maceo Plex, chances are their latest endeavour, the ‘Eivissa’ EP, will follow a similar trajectory.
The ‘Eivissa’ showcases the duo’s current preoccupation too: club focused productions with a sense of edge and attitude about them.
On the one end, “Can Pilot” is a track with a dark, electronic soul, and the capacity to test even the staunchest of ‘underground’ dancefloors.
The second track, “Suruvilla”, is so called because it was produced at the duo’s studio in their home in Ibiza. A decidedly more “techy” affair, it’s a similarly soulful number with a versatile dimension that’s sure to land it in the back of the more discerning jocks. In essence, the ‘Eivissa’ EP is precisely the sort of release to make an impression – regardless of where it’s unleashed.
