The Southern returns to the EI8HT with his ‘Raw Break’ EP
Italian DJ/producer, The Southern, returns to the EI8HT label after 2020’s ‘Raw Culture’ EP, with another collection of bass bin rattling, high octane, techno bangers on the ‘Raw Break’ EP.
The Southern hails from Matera in the South Of Italy. He has focused his productions for labels including Tronic, Odd Recordings and Doppelgaenger. This EP has 4 original tracks, ‘Tree Of Life’ takes things soulful and deeper. Whilst ‘Interference’ had Morse code like sonics which creates a powerful groove. It’s more relentless and energetic, with a beat that gets your feet stomping. Tuned’ is full of late-night vibes. Its Grimey bass stabs and scattergun percussions are joined by eerie sonics which takes the track into a surprising new direction.
‘Come With Me’ boots things off in fine fettle, as incessant organ stabs and reverb-soaked pads tuck into a clap happy drum workout that really soars. Granite hard beats and metallic hats carve through ‘Raw Break’, as its vocal gets pulverised, whilst ‘Raw Organ’ slides into Chi-town jackin’ tech territory, with a nod to the Dance Mania style and a slammin’ vibe stamped all over it. ‘Trax Jam’ closes this stellar EP, again, showing The Southern’s more housier chops, whilst still keeping the energies spiralling.
