The first physical offering from the Jambutek Imprint features four slices of contemporary house music committed to wax. Rich sound design, heavily-swung grooves and a healthy dose of minimalist flavour. The A-side contains two rolling cuts from Argentinian producer AWSI. Leading the charge is "Last Try", its wobbly synth fills and filtered chords bubbling along with a steady tenacity that should get even the sternest heads nodding in agreement. The slightly bouncier "Mate Cocido" features a sparse yet infectious bass line, layered on a bed of haunting pads and complemented by swingy, modern percussion. Two low-key weapons for the discerning house-head. Flipping over to the B-side, label boss Asvajit serves up "Encrypted"; its washed out pads, quirky chord stabs and acidic fills providing the backdrop for a snappy low end groover. For the B2, Prodot rounds things off nicely with "Rekord"; laying down a delicate balance of synthesized keys and soulful vocal cuts accompanied by tight, percussion lines. A restrained display of lush sound design; particularly suited for small rooms and hazy after-hours.
