Tracklist: A1 Nightzoom A2 Saraska B1 The Girl Who Loved Flowers B2 Stars Keep Shining UC Beatz delivers his ‘Nightzoom’ EP via B2 Recordings this December, comprised of four originals from the Belgian artist. Brussels-based producer, DJ and label owner of Entrepôt Records, UC Beatz has carved out quite the reputation over the past decade and a half, dropping material on reputed imprints such as New York’s Razor N Tape, Cinthie’s Collective Cuts, Derrick Carter and Luke Solomon’s The Classic Music Company amongst others. Here he joins the B2 Recordings roster with his latest collection of works and title-cut ‘Nightzoom’ leads, laying down organic drums, hypnotic chants and circling synth strings to create a subtly blooming, loop-led groove. ‘Saraska’ follows and strips things back to choppy acid bass, swinging 707 drums, vocal shots and an amalgamation of airy resonant keys. Opening the flip-side is ‘The Girl Who Loved Flowers’, employing classic deep house tropes with fluttery Rhodes chords, tension building strings, snaking bass and crunchy drums throughout. Lastly ‘Stars Keep Shining’ then rounds out the release, leaning towards a more jazzy house aesthetic courtesy of intricately nuanced key melodies, warm subs, shuffled drums and winding Moog like synth licks.
