Tracklist 12″: A1 Its Just A Feeling (06:55) A2 Its Just A Feeling (Leo Pol Remix) (07:09) B1 You Don’t Know (06:13) B2 Infuse (06:05) Industrious Polish DJ, producer and live performer Szafran is summoned to Thabo’s Berlin-based house imprint Home Again, debuting a new alias and sound in his arsenal as he reaches the spaces between house, breakbeat and acid house. The label’s third release, Thabo grabs revered Parisian producer Leo Pol for a killer remix. Previously releasing and performing as Oskar Szafraniec, he broke through under the mentorship of acid house legend A Guy Called Gerald, touring extensively together and developing his live show. His releases have come through notable labels Rawax, Deset and Cyclo, while collaborations with heavyweights Ricardo Villalobos and Pier Bucci brought more discerning ears, and basing himself in Berlin ensured that he’d play across the city’s hallowed haunts, including Club der Visionaere, Watergate, Tresor and Salon zur Wilden Renate. “After eight years in Berlin, I relocated to Croatia’s Dalmatian coast last year. There was the enforced break from touring, but I also took a break from producing. I wanted to step back and find new inspirations. I was listening to a lot of Warp Records, feeling hugely inspired by the melodies in Aphex Twin and Squarepusher’s ’90s releases. My musical direction changed and I wanted to present these influences with my own touch. I feel my music is more emotive through the way I’m contrasting analogue, digital and organic elements and I hope people feel that.” - Szafran Packing punch and propulsion in equal measure is ‘It’s Just A Feeling’, a striking, emotive track that cuts through with the sonic signature of the Roland TB 303. Prolific mastermind Leo Pol picks up the pace, giving the track a rerub with all the bang and bustle to vitalise a dancefloor. Prodigious outing ‘You Don’t Know’ enters the field full of vigor with the breakbeat drum loops and 4 X 4 kick drum seque
