Greek artist Vangelis Kostoxenakis makes his annual return to Moon Harbour with another club-ready EP that packs a big punch.
It has been a busy 12 months for this definitive tech house talent with EPs on the likes of Strangelove and Under No Illusion confirming his place at the top table. The Talk of the Town label boss is a sound engineer who uses those skills to really elevate his tracks above the rest with great attention to the small details that makes them really pop. Once more he digs deep here to cook up some really inventive moods and grooves.
The title track Leprechaun is a tough, rugged cut with an urgent, percolating bassline that really gets you pumped up. Gnarly and always on the move, it underpins a dark, filtered vocal and makes for the sort of intense vibe that freaks out crowds and will always make a huge impact.
The equally excellent ‘2 Sexy’ offers a deeper but just as left of centre house sound that is built on crisp kicks and hits, with a steamy vocal and yearning hooks all sucking you into the dance. It’s a fulsome affair that always keeps you on edge throughout.
These two tracks are stuffed with plenty of fresh sounds and both are executed to perfection.
