R&S sub label Meda Fury have unearthed some really inspirational producers who giving their take on the modern house sound such as Royota OPP, Hazylujah and Sad City. Now it's the turn of Alex Pletnev from Lithuania with the Dancer EP, which the label themselves describe as "unknown adaptation African and oriental vibes for a dance floor". On the A side, we have the title track; an Afro acid cut with some absolutely mesmerizing and trance inducing rhythms beneath its 303 acid squelch. On the flip, we've got the spiritual life music of "Zachit Lubit" the kind of positive affirmation you'd get on the dancefloor at Body & Soul NYC with Joe Clausell on the decks. Finally we've got the African boogie of "On Fire" sounding more like an edit of an obscure gem from wayback; this one was well funky!
