Guava - The Dolphins Are Back In Venice
Release Date: 7th May 2021
Guava returns to Control Freak for his second full length EP ‘The Dolphins are Back in Venice’ - a collection of 4 playful dancefloor bangers, precision engineered for the club.
Since his Control Freak debut with the ‘Lift’ EP in 2019, Guava has been hard at work in the studio. Following a move to Berlin (and a series of releases on the likes of Banoffee Pies and Holding Hands) he’s back on the label with a new and refined style, retaining the melodic flourishes of his earlier releases whilst turning his focus squarely towards the dancefloor - a perfect fit for our white label series. As an accomplished session musician, Guava continues to explore the synthesis between digital and analog production and songwriting techniques, innovatively self-sampling his own guitar playing across the record to add a human touch to his airtight productions.
On new 4-tracker ‘The Dolphins are Back in Venice’, which includes collaborations with rising UK artists Breaka & LUXE, Guava draws influence from a broad range of dance music styles in true CF fashion - combining rising, trance-influenced melodies with the syncopated rhythms and bassweight of the UK scene. Strictly limited vinyl release, hand stamped in London at CFHQ - first come first served!
