we_ctrl drop their third release this December entitled ‘we_ctrl003’ by label co-founder Tomson, backed with a remix from hotly tipped Wolf Music artist Medlar.
British producer Tomson is most notably known for his work with the likes of Freerange, Morris Audio and Urban Torque and has developed a distinctive, soul-laden house sound through a string of releases and remixes since 2008. Now Tomson has stepped up with production partner Benedict to launch the we_ctrl imprint in 2012, with the the first two release seeing support from artists such as Kerri Chandler, Flori, Christopher Rau and Rob Mello to name a few.
‘Lose This’ opens the release here, a classic slice of deep house that embodies synth swells, hooky, driving drums and raw piano chords as its driving force. The cut embraces a heady, hypnotic feel with the melodic elements progressively building in intensity for its duration resulting in a smooth peak-time slow bloomer. Next up is ’90fo’, an airy, stripped-back house number that takes on a simple, less-is- more form. Crisp, shuffling hats, melancholic hooky keys, deep emotive strings and an ever-evolving intensity position this cut as yet another classy house track full of exquisite intricacies and fine detail.
Following on is ‘Next To Her’, taking things slightly deeper with an ethereal feel, a swirling pad line runs throughout the cut with subtle additional elements slowly easing in, Tomson displays his ability to brilliantly craft together an amalgamation of sounds that compliment each other, layering up the groove to further invigorate its strength and energy.
To close the release Wolf Music’s Medlar turns in a remix of ‘Time For Change’ by Tomson which featured on we_ctrl’s inaugural release back in July. The Brit producer turns in a rough and ready rework of the original cut, employing raw, loose drums, filtered harmonic textures and jazzy synth shots to create a warm, Detroit infused house track.
Tomson’s ‘we_ctrl003’ is out on we_ctrl 10th December 2012 (Vinyl) and 16th January 2013 (Digital).
