The Stockholm-based DJs and producers Mr. Tophat and Art Alfie, creators of next-level Swedish dance music label Karlovak Recordings, have announced their new label series, KRLVK. First up on KRLVK is Ron Bacardi (aka Ben Sims) who delivers the burning 'Criss Disco Biscuits Vol 1' E.P four track of disco-infused house and techno bombs, which is due out 23rd May.

After nine successful Karlovak releases by the label-lords themselves, the new KRLVK series on the label will sport work from other artists, including exclusive, all-new releases by Radio Slave, Ben Sims, and the Chicago house legend DJ Jes already lined up.

Ben Sims presents Ron Bacardi - this release under the Ron Bacardi alias is slightly different to his usual releases, it's raw house with a couple of disco edits along with a absolute techno bomb.

First on the release is 'Make Some Love', it's a stomping track with a 4/4 disco-style beat, overlaid vocals and piercing high-hats, with a lovely distorted drop - this track just simply rocks.

Next up is 'Lucky People' it's a little more of a house affair, again featuring those piercing high-hats, distorted claps, and a lovely 303 acid line thrown in for good measure, it's all tied together with some soulful vocals.

'Going Down' see's Ron Bacardi, or should we say Ben Sims return to the more usual relentless techno, but with a slight disco edge, deliver that little bit of an extra punch - it's all glued together with a tasty little vocal sample.

To complete the release, Ron Bacardi comes about face, in similar style to how the E.P began, with 'Move Dat Ting', it's another Nu-Disco/House cross-over with a blistering pace set, with it's stabbing toms, warped high-hats and sampled vocals, it's another completely blinding track.

In all the release is not one to be missed, full of character and panache, and sure to do some damage on the dancefloors over the summer months - we look forward to more from this series of releases from Karlovak Recordings.

Don't forget that you can catch Ben Sims throwing down the gauntlet in Liverpool, when he joins our good friends WAXXX on 8th May 2015 at 24 Kitchen Street, Liverpool - get your tickets from See you there!
