Copenhagen Underground Posse returns after a snowy, winter hiatus on a slamming four-track tip with the family. B From E traces his video game & trance roots on 'Human Revolution', while S.A.M. (Mandar / Delaphine) sculpts the dreamy chords of the original into that ethereal realm of house, as only he does it.
On the flipside the newcomers bring the action, as Soaked goes heavy with the SP1200 distorted bassline stomper 'Heavy Thoughts' followed by Belmaati with his mesmerizing deep house vibes on 'Deep CTRL'

Burek family welcomes Detroit house don Javonntte into their circle with four infectious house bangers spread across the whole spectrum of the genre. This record has something for each part of the night, from the easy mood setting vibes to soulful bangers and straight up jacking peak time tracks that will make you sweat.
‘Tomorrow’, the opening cut, is the best example of the latter and the track’s vocal sample “strictly underground” is well earned. This pure head-bang house track will give you a run for your money. A side is concluded with ‘Journey’, a proper soulful house track which keeps all of its energy in spite of a slightly more subtle approach.
No One Like You’ is the first one on the flip and is a prime example of just how much soul and depth can a house banger have and Javonntte excels here both as a producer and a vocalist. Closing track ‘Enter The Disco’ is a slower, disco-sampled jam, perfect for that in-between time in the club when the action’s about to happen.

In another tight and consistent projection, Paxton Fettel actualizes his assertion for independence, eclecticism and voodoo - with a collection of delightful enchanting vibes.
Familiarly neat and energetic, house beats and crystal-clear chords accord to accompany the melodic dawdling, while insatiable and unbelievably facetious talkative babblings of all kinds stretch out into organic gliding laces.
The purposefully optimistic and spirited atmosphere is the echo of the ceaseless quest for serious lightness, relaxed ecstatic states, truth and wonders.
At the intersection of devoted beginnings and mastered preferences, this EP provides a soothing expression of the reality of change, and acts as the denouement of a true explorative pit stop for the musician - and the listener, always playful, and sprucely yours.

"One in a million beatmakers, but the one in a million kind..."
The Århus-born beatsmith extraordinaire Terry Tester's career behind the decks and MPC spans nearly two decades almost solely spent within the world of hiphop. After an unintentional kebab lunch, an immediate musical connection was sparked between the label owner of Copenhagen Underground Posse and Terry, who then dived head first into house music - and what a result!
Having made his label-debut with the raw, bass-heavy roller 'Change Up' included on the V/A 'Liderlige Rytmer Del 2 af 3", Terry now returns to C.U.P. with the EP 'Genealogia', showcasing his unique style of tape drum tracks, warm subby bottom ends and spacey funk melodies.
