Masomenos & Jay Haze – Hazy Duck EP Label:Welcome To Masomenos Catalog#:WTM033 Format:12″ Vinyl Country:Paris Released:2013
Commencing their 2013 release schedule with a glint in their eye and a friend by their side, Masomenos return to feed our ears with their cerebral brand of house and techno. This also marks the first appearance of the year for Jay Haze, a veritable hero of the freakier side of the night, and here the American-born Berliner shares the spotlight with Adrien for four tracks that run deep and far into the recesses of psychoactive dance music. Jay has championed creative minimal production since he first emerged with his celebrated Contexterrior and Tuning Spork labels, achieving many great releases, collaborations, aliases, mixes, shows and projects that firmly place him as a figurehead of the European scene. His vision for intricate and tripped-out grooves fits perfectly with the Masomenos ethos, which has resulted in this mind-bending EP of stripped-back splendour. “Hazy Duck” knows just how to tap away at the nerves, letting sinister trickles of melody run into each other while the sub bass lolls drunkenly underneath. As if the delicate patterns weren’t enough to creep you out, in comes a voice straight from the netherworld intent on paying homage to Lionel Richiewith a deadpan delivery. ..

This time, it is with the aid of the pan global operation known as Ashes To Machines. Lionel Corsini (DJ Oil) & Jeff Sharel are true musical ambassadors, having travelled through more than 40 countries in the last 3 years. Encountering all manner of musicians and singers along the way, they all contribute their own spirit to the greater whole. Sounds of the African diaspora meet those of their European descendants, creating what can only truthfully be described as music of the Earth.
Remixes propel the organic sounding originals further towards the future, with Vakula, Ji Dru & Sandra Nkake and Juju & Jordash all adding their own unique interpretations, while equally showing the depth of understanding they all have for more esoteric musical forms. These are sounds which will never grow old, which will last as long as the planet itself and indeed beyond. Nevertheless, physical copies of this record will be limited – you would be well advised to buy now, or else miss your chance in years to come…
