Momentary Records delivers four heavyweights on Various Artists EP
Melbourne based Momentary Records returns for their second release, delivering four heavyweight club tracks with a simmering energy ready to take the night in new directions.
The brainchild of synth nerds Juxtpose and JDK, analog jam project JDJX opens things up with Disco Machine. Led by a warbling bass line, an anthemic synth melody punctuates the mix. Swirling reverbs and stuttering synth chords take this one on a trip through techy, deep house territory.
Label founder Ben Houghton returns on a similar tip, his track Night Channels bringing pounding kicks and saturated chords together with a classic vocal sample for yet another stripped-back house burner. Cut from a recent live set, rough & ready filter sweeps bring a raw energy to the track.
Rising star Hymns offers maturity and finesse, with his aptly named Giant 90s Rephlex Analord Based Love Affair pays homage to early inspirations as he crafts a deadly and precise mix of electro-infused techno.
With closing track Reigning, Melbourne legend Rambl lets the subs do the talking. This deep, grooving dub techno jam floats tape delays, synth stabs and hi hats over a rib rattling bassline to hypnotic effect. With a long-awaited production debut, this deep digging DJ shows us some of his finely honed studio skills.
