Following on from JC Williams ace "In Your Arms" release we bring you four solid club workouts that combine to make the Allied Forces EP.
A heavyweight 40th release featuring two Belfast crew members Chris Hanna and Martin De Brig and for extra punch deadly analogue warrior Amir Alexander was invited to add his deft touch to both originals.
Chris Hanna's Moonshine has a tense electronic riff that cut's through any dance floor like a knife leaving no one unscathed and Amir's deadly beat re fix guarantees you can not escape it.
Martin De Brig is another Belfast artist that has joined the ranks of Extended Play, his love of hardware and all things house and techno grabbed the attention of label heads JMX and T-Bone so much that they swore him straight in after hearing his initial offerings.
De Brig's first output on the label is a proper acid house jam, percolating claps, 303 action, spacious arrangement and a stellar vocal all work together to create a standout vocal gem.
Amir pitches the vocal deeper and takes a detour down a slightly darker avenue than the original. Thankfully, deeper and darker by no means equals boring here, as a rolling bass line and his trademark killer percussive patterns really keep things moving, demonstrating why we were so keen to join forces with him in the first place.
