East End Dubs delivers the second release on Chris Stussy’s newly minted Up The Stuss imprint, ‘Becs Groove’, accompanied by the label founder on remix duties.
A leading name within the UK’s house and minimal scene, London’s finest East End Dubs has grown to become one of house music’s most prolific and consistent producers. Heading up his own labels Eastenderz, Social and the self- titled East End Dubs, with all three serving as go-to outlets for essential peak-time cuts, hazy afterhours productions and crisp DJ tools, whilst also releasing material via global powerhouses such as Hot Creations and FUSE, December now sees the bubbling talent head to Chris Stussy’s newly launched Up The Stuss imprint to deliver the label’s sophomore release ‘Bec’s Groove’ – backed by a remix from the label founder himself.
Opening cut ‘Holo’ welcomes the Londoner’s distinct, signature sonics as he goes to work combining chunky, rubbery bass grooves with slinking percussion and wavering synth melodies, whilst title cut ‘Bec’s Groove’ switches up proceedings as rich chords and snappy drums combine effortlessly with infectious vocals to offer up a sun- soaked, shuffling house number. Next up, ‘Jazzed In Time’ utilises playful bass licks and off-kilter electronics warp around a hypnotic core groove and up the energy levels, before welcoming Chris Stussy’s own interpretation of the track as he combines shimmering synths, fuzzy atmospherics, and resonant chords to close proceedings in style.
