This next release on Convert is quite an interesting one, as it sees Tom Sawyer, a DJ from Central America put his talents to the test. Quite a hit in the Panama area in Central America, this man, under his Tom Sawyer guise, delivers two very chunky house cuts here.
First up is Dirty, a track that very much lives up to its title. Deep chunky beats meet a throbbing baseline, all while acid riffs give the track a gritty tough edge. Dark vocal stabs combine with percussive elements to build the track up throughout, and as such, it is quite a quirky, yet very much a chunky production full of full and devastating beats.
Almost There on the flip is just as threatening as the a-side. Again the beats are very heavy, and these beats combine well with the percussion in the track. A deep subtle baseline roars in the background, giving the track a solid funk to it, while electric stabs keeps the track in a constant flow. This is definitely some tough peak time progressive.
A very good release here out of Panama, with both sides not messing around. Two good tough tracks that both have a good flow and groove to them, as well as some very good production.
