[OSC004] Malin Genie – Sense Of Swing EP
Following a recent outing under the Mandar alias alongside studio pals Samuel Andre Masden and Charlie Naffah, Nick Putman presents his first solo single under the Malin Genie guise for two years. Predictably, he explores a range of deep house styles over the course of a four-track EP that’s both quietly confident and largely impressive. There’s a real bump to “Sense of Swing”, despite the presnce of warm, fluid keys, while “Propter” successfully joins the dots between loopy tech-house and shimmering deepness. The techno influence is more obvious on the flip, where “Redskap” and “Ulux” both derive potency from the hypnotic nature of Putman’s immaculately produced groove.
