|1.||"Down Shake" (6:44)|
Given that both Julien Sandre and Pierre Codarin have been pulling up trees on the underground for some time, you'd expect this collaborative EP on Berlin's EWax to be solidly on-point. It is, of course, with all four tracks striking the right balance between deep house dreaminess and the skewed grooves of Parisian tech-house. Our highlight is probably the hypnotic late night hum of "Down Shake", where drifting vocal samples and hushed electronics weave in an out of a bass-heavy tech groove, though the sub-heavy snap of early morning throb-job "Closer" isn't far behind. Elsewhere, you'll find more chunky tech-house thrills in the shape of "Mystere", while opener "Kalypso" is a deep and dreamy treat.
