Incoming…! 2019 ends with a bang as we unveil the second release from tINI’s Part Of The Gang record label. An extension of her tINI And The Gang parties, which were conceived in Ibiza, the label will act as a home for music from tINI’s close circle of friends and collaborators.
On this second release we have one of the Gang’s long standing members, Bodeler. The eclectic Argetinian has been spinning at tINI’s parties for a while now, so it makes sense to have him on board. Across three track he demonstrates his penchant for nuanced dancefloor weaponry, making this a must-have EP. Ricardo Villalobos has been supporting ‘Ridrum’ in his sets, so you know this is a special one…
Kicking things off it’s ‘Ridrum’, a pumping cut driven by organic-sounding percussion spliced with crisp 4×4 drum programming. The bass is hypnotic, pulsating in tandem with the beats to create a scintillating track – when the vocal calls out “Radio”, the dancefloor goes crazy.
On ‘Bom Gates’ Bodeler incorporates a repeated vocal clip to cultivate a mesmerising atmosphere. After a short breakdown, another vocal sample joins the fray alongside a deadly b-line and sharp, sturdy claps.
Lastly, ‘Klepex’ gives us a heady ride into unexplored terrains. The low end groans with a low slung groove, while gentle pads add a touch of mystique. It’s a masterful combination of contrasting layers, closing the EP in style.
