A new label from Liverpoool's home of minimal house.
The first release comes from newcomers Uzu, a duo made up of MODU:LAR residents Danny Mc and James Hall. From the stripped-back production to the minimalistic track names, it's a lean, businesslike debut. "The A1" and "The B2," in particular, showcase the classic combination of tight, swinging percussion, punchy bass and spacey pads that mesh in satisfying structures. "The A2" will stand out rather than blend into a mix, with a lively bassline made for drawing energy out of early-morning crowds. The higher tempo and classic "Burning Up" vocal sample give "The B1" a touch of personality, and a distinctly UK flavour. Uzu is an impressive debut from the team behind one of Liverpool's best nights.
