Material Series frontman Mihalis Safras makes a welcome return to Moon Harbour, this time alongside Swiss talent Yvan Genkins.
Mihalis Safras has long been a part of the Tech House underground and last released on this label with his Street Lights EP in 2020. It is one of almost 100 he has dropped on the likes of Relief and Sola over the last two decades, each time bringing new energy and fresh references to his sounds. Swiss legend Genkins, meanwhile, brings his own rare beat patterns and lively percussive textures to music on 8 Bit, Saved and many others.
Their superb ‘Soda’ is an impossibly lively house cut that never sits still. The loose, jostling drums are overloaded with busy cow bells, snaking Indian melodies, popping synths and tribal vocals. As it builds and builds, the floor will be in raptures as the track explodes into life once more amongst rolling snares, lumpy kicks and fat bass.
This is high octane and richly detailed house music from an accomplished pair.
