Spencer Parker - Show Him You're the One
Solo Spencer Parker productions have been thin on the ground of late. Fresh for 2013, however, the Berlin-based producer debuts on Tsuba Limited, joined on the vinyl-only label's tenth release by wax fiends Italojohnson, who appear with their first remix. Parker wastes little time in introducing "Show Him You're the One"'s defining elements: a balmy haze of synths glistens against a backdrop of stringent kicks and hi-hats. A beautifully well-measured bassline underpins the key components, which are stripped away at the breakdown to ensure maximum impact when they return in pure, summery bliss. ItaloJohnson, on the other hand, deliver a slice of mechanized tech house, albeit one with enough depth to be thoroughly captivating. Layering hefty basslines, salient lyrics and cosmic chords over a rolling frame, one should've known Italojohnson would proffer something that doesn't sound like a remix at all.
