Italian artist The Southern lands on Nicole Moudaber’s MOOD label with an EP of powerful techno rollers.

The Southern has been in superb form of late, with releases on Truncate, SUARA, Kneaded Pains, CLR, and now Nicole Moudaber’s infamous MOOD imprint with the ‘JCK THIS LOVE’ EP. His driving, raw and sophisticated sound has won support from artists like Joseph Capriati and Adam Beyer, taking him onto the international stage at events such as ADE, Harry Klein Club, as well as many venues across Italy.

Opener ‘Jack This’ is a high-impact techno banger with clipped and funky vocal stabs carefully layered over driving drums. The fizzing, textured synths bring extra energy to the table, and this one won’t fail to blow up the club. Up next, ‘Get Some’ comes through with edgy undertones, its dark vocals and pulsating bass building the pressure under smeared dub chords.

Showing he has many styles in his arsenal, ‘The Love’ has a machine soul feel that echoes the magical Detroit sound as it powers on, while an impassioned cry adds explosive emotion. Last but not least, ‘TRAM’ brings industrial textures and hammering drum programming for a real steamroller that makes an indelible impact.
