Release Date: October 2021
This October, UZ MI Records co-founder Rick Silver returns to release five eccentric cuts entitled ‘Strawberry Avenue’.
London-based Rick Silver co-runs the exciting UZ MI Records imprint alongside label partner James Vernon, known as the duo Money House Club. The pair of them explore the deeper realms of atmospheric analogue house, techno, ambient and everything in between, with previous releases picking up support from Laurent Garnier, DJ Bone, DVS1, Elena Colombi, Mosca and more. Rick has previously landed on imprints such as Foliage Records and Dessau but now returns to his home label for the five-tracker ‘Strawberry Avenue’ EP.
Kicking off the EP is ‘Group Funk’, which lays down lush pads, organic samples and inviting bass grooves before sweeping synths, rattling percussion and modulated fx take the focus in ‘Japan’. Up next, ‘Feeding’ brings sludgy, leftfield rhythms to the pack featuring dubbed-out mysticism and echoing soundscapes, whilst ‘Small Hours’ brings a hazy late-night house vibe with deep low frequencies, dreamy chimes and breezy elements. ‘Artificial’ provides positive energy with blooming synth pads, warm bass flutters, and glossy melodic flourishes to round things off.
