Italian duo Mind Against and producer Locked Groove team up for release on

Italian duo Mind Against and Belgian producer Locked Groove team up for a 12" of big room techno for Scuba’s Hotflush imprint. With Locked Groove’s first release for the label dating back to three years ago, he’s no stranger to the catalogue, whereas Alex Fognini and Federico Fognini’s work has been housed at Rome’s Life And Death so far. With both acts coming off the back of triumphant finishes to 2014 - the success of Locked Groove's huge Enigma EP and Mind Against's surge into #33 position in Resident Advisor's 2014 DJ poll - 'Elysium / Pulsar' marks the first time the producers have collaborated. The two-piece EP combines Mind Against’s emotional melodies with Locked Groove’s gallant dance floor aesthetics. On Elysium this takes shape as spurring drums and a climax of shimmering synth anecdotes. The B-side follows a similarly constructing arc of suspense, the glitchy synths and the driving kick drum creating an aquiver atmosphere. 'Elysium' also featured in Tale Of Us' BBC Radio 1 Essential Mix on Saturday 24th January. Tracklist: A. Elysium B. Pulsar Out now on Hotflush
