Steve Huerta - Say It Wasn’t / Bear Witness EP (incl. Locked Groove remix)

Steve Huerta will see his debut release on Anjunadeep this February with ‘Say It Wasn’t / Bear Witness’ along with a remix from Hotflush artist Locked Groove.

LA born and Berlin-based DJ and producer Steve Huerta will be making his debut on Anjunadeep on the 2nd February following an impressive run of releases on labels such as Waze & Odyssey’s’ Street Tracks, Dirt Crew, Amadeus and Newington. The West Coast instrumentalist has seen support from the likes of BBC Radio 1, XLR8R & DJ Mag along with his collaborative track with long-time friend Urulu ‘Things I Didn’t Mean’ becoming Resident Advisor’s 48th most charted track of 2013.

Featured on the Anjunadeep 06 compilation which topped the iTunes Dance Album chart in the USA, Huerta delivers an emotive and powerful opener for the EP in his melodic ‘Say It Wasn’t’, built over subtle chords, shifting percussion and deep fuzzy tones. ‘Bear Witness’ pulses into life over shifting hi-hats and weighty kicks, around the one minute mark the slow burning percussive groove is partnered with hypnotic oscillating synths and delicate chords to dish up a warm and well-polished record bubbling with vitality.

Up for remix duty is Hotflush Recordings man Locked Groove, who seamlessly blurs the lines between house and techno for his club-ready re-imagining of ‘Say it Wasn’t’. Rippling percussion and fluctuating synths characterise the dynamic progressions in the record, which culminate to deliver a stunning groove-laden re-think from the Belgian powerhouse.

Steve Huerta ‘Say It Wasn’t / Bear Witness’ EP is out on Anjunadeep on 2nd February 2015.
