about

Chris Wood and MEAT are a formidable studio duo that team up once again for a new EP, that offers two originals and a remix by label boss Matthias Tanzmann as well as Moon Harbour artist Maximiljan.

This experienced pair has been producing together for years, with well received and fresh tech tracks on labels like Souvenir, Pressure Traxx, Murmur and Upon You. Designed for maximum impact on the floor, they are often loose limbed, baseline driven cuts that are as great for DJs as they are for dancers.

And that is certainly the case again here, with ‘Playing What’, which is a clean and crisp, tumbling tech house effort with slick drums and curious voices buried within the scurrying groove. Retro neon melodies join the party to add some colour and all in all this is another fine bit of work from these musical sparring partners. The remix by boss man Matthias is an even deeper thing with dubby undercurrents, lively but icy hi-hats, alien details and smeared synths fleshing out the infectious drums.

Chris Wood & MEAT Then come correct again with ‘DaDaDou’, which has delayed dub chords shimmering beneath wood block hits. The dusty drums are some what old school and flirt with breakbeat patterns, but most importantly they bring a real sense of fluidity and movement to the track that it is impossible to ignore. The excellent remix comes from German producer Maximiljan, who has already released a solo EP on Moon Harbour last year. His version is stripped back to sci-fi deep house territory with rubbery bass, a gnarled, acidic baseline driving things along and is a real dead of night bomb for the heads.

This is a varied but consistently on point EP from Moon Harbour and Chris Wood & MEAT that will bring together lovers of everything from tech to acid, deep house to techno.
