Premiere: Vangelis Kostoxenakis – Hip It
For their next release, Moon Harbour welcome a new artist to the family in the form of Athens based Greek producer, Vangelis Kostoxenakis. Kostoxenakis has made waves with his productions on Snatch!, Suara and Kling Klong, all under an array of aliases. Something of a perfectionist, his formal studies of sound design and music technology have allowed him to conjure his own unique takes on tech house. He also runs his own label Talk of the Town, and here proves he is not one to follow trends.
The excellent ‘Hip It’ is our debut transmission, which looks to classic US garage for a bit of sweet swing style, with air raid sirens going off and amping up the energy to rave-y levels. Inventive, off kilter and filled with real world samples, these are playful, high functioning tracks that hit the mark each and every time.
