The third release from the people that bring you London's Society Of The Underbelly parties sees its sibling promoters, Amy and Tim, take advantage of their Italian connections by asking Neapolitan trio BHOO to reveal their talents.
BHOO's original mix of "Elastik Phone" is barreling, grinding house that reverberates to a metallic clank and the thump of a tom-tom that sounds like it's being retuned mid-hit. In Alex Arnout's soft hands it winds its neck in a tad, the Dogmatik label head putting his faith in a gem of a bassline that snakes the length of this organic tech house cut.
Fans of something deeper can get their fix from Matt Tolfrey and Sam Russo's outing. Less bubbling, more lightly sparkling, its wobbling keys sound like electronic steel drums. Coupled with verdant Chicago-style synth stabs and a frothy, itchy rhythm, it completes an EP of adroitly constructed, beautifully balanced dance music.
