Fraction Disco (Metro Edit)
Watergate Affairs is a brand new offering featuring residents, regulars and affiliated artists that have developed close ties to the club through the years. Over the course of four tracks, Jimi Jules, Lee Jones, La Fleur and David Mayer & Sebastian Voigt perfectly display the sound of Watergate.
Diving right in is Jimi Jules and he hasn’t let lost a step, picking up where he left off with his stellar ‘Bogotá EP’ earlier this year by churning out a burner. “6%” is rooted in a heaving low end groove while hypnotic tones spiral around a modulating lead that never lands in the same place, ensuring a twisted dance floor venture.
Following on the A side we see long time resident Lee Jones at the top of his game with ‘Fraction Disco’, edited by no other than Metro. Equal parts eerie and sublime, it navigates through a groovy playfulness with deliberate severity by contrasting bouncing percussion with haunting keys creating a tune that feels absolutely massive.
Flipping sides, the one and only La Fleur kicks it off in her signature style on ‘Waves’, effortlessly blending modern design with a classic approach resulting in an unforgettable tune that flawlessly shines at any time and place.
Wrapping up the EP is close friends to the club; David Mayer & Sebastian Voigt. ‘Voyage One’ sees the two plunge deep into the aural wilderness utilizing rich, organic percussives as lush sonic hooks rise and fall spawning a unique excursion into celestial spaces.
We couldn’t be happier to present you this collection of artists close to our heart and hope you enjoy the first edition of Watergate Affairs!
