Approaching the end of another busy year of releases and international shows for Bamboleo Records label bosses Neverdogs, they continue to set a precedent for cutting-edge underground dance music with their latest release. Returning to Artslaves’ much respected Moan Recordings imprint with their ‘Chocolate’ EP, Tommy and Marco’s latest work also sets the stage for an impressive cameo from fellow Italian DJ/Producer duo YOUniverse. You can download/stream ‘Chocolate’ now here: https://moanrec.fanlink.to/chocolate.
The first of two originals from Neverdogs, the title cut ‘Chocolate’ features an array of punchy rhythmic elements alongside rich, resonant synths and smooth, deepened bass tones, brought together by atmospheric FX samples, cadent vox chops and swinging percussive drive. YOUniverse delivers a contrasting interpretation with their remix, electing for more demanding grooves, grittier musicality and grainier textures with a funky flow from start to finish. ‘Landing’ closes out the release, loaded with quirky personality and more delightfully danceable analogue musicality, riding a wobbly bassline and spacey sonics to carve out an intergalactic-tinged roller.
Neverdogs’ ‘Chocolate’ EP (incl. YOUniverse Remix) is available now via Moan Recordings.
