Bulgarian DJ and producer Momo Dobrev debuts on SRUR with the superb tech house fuelled monster – Jungle, which comes backed up with a fantastic remix from Dr Mabuze. He started to produce music in 2009 and quickly moved on to DJing having secured lots of gigs around his hometown. With a passion for what he was doing and the drive to achieve he soon had his own label – Phraser Records. A hugely popular artist in Bulgaria, this guy has numerous releases over a number of top labels. Delighted to have him on board at SRUR and we hope to see more soon from this talented guy.
The Original Mix gets moving with a classic punchy kick and crispy hat combo complete with sharp claps. You get a tech house vibe right away from the background FX that linger on the intro. A deep, strolling bassline kicks in and sends the track into overdrive on the groove front. Those tight percussions keep the rhythm steady as the techness starts to overflow with various FX layering up. The breakdown is a surreal affair with the FX staying at the forefront to the backdrop of mysterious swirling pads before we get churned back into the main track for the duration. Top notch stuff.
Dutch DJ and producer Dr Mabuze returns to the SRUR shores with a wonderful tech remix. His last outing – Universe EP – back in the summer of 2015 gained a lot of support on the circuit. The remix intros with a shuffling hat and percussion sequence that sets the rhythm up nicely and will surely get the feet moving on the floors. A nice chunky kick comes in alongside an equally chunky bassline that powers the track on effortlessly. Those tight drums are a big focus here the track is given a boost with some cool vocals and simple one shot instrument hits. A superb slice of tech house that will be a welcome addition in any set.
