about

Next up on Moon Harbour digital is a four tack EP from close label associates Zohki & Roozlee. The pair first got to know label boss Matthias Tanzmann when driving him to a festival in Holland. Since then they have become good friends with the label, and now offer up their first release for Moon Harbour in great style.

This new EP is no different, and sees two tracks in collaboration with Agent!, Vito & Danito. One of those is the opener, "Work It (On & On)" - already proving to be a big hit with those who have played it, it’s something of a tough and techy track stuffed with crowd noises and atmosphere, whilst the other is "Love Baby". This collaboration has sharp, choppy percussion sounds cutting through deep drums and basslines and snatched vocals which can’t quite be made out but which add a human aspect to the track for maximum impact.

The other two tracks from Zohki & Roozlee hit a little harder: "My Swag" is bumpy, too, rising up and down on well-defined hi-hats as wavy tones weave their way through the arrangement from start to finish. The sounds are crisp and precise without sounding overly synthetic and will surely work any decent dancefloor into a real sweat.

Finally, "Dreams" again treads a thin line between deep house and tech house, with rueful synths hiding in between dense percussion and sliding drums.

One Way Out is an EP that marks out Zohki & Roozlee as a pair very much with their own sound, and one that Matthias Tanzmann was right to pick up on.
