Review

After SAMIM & MICHAL’s dazzling debut EP “Dini Mueter” featuring the anthem “I know you wanna ride my Cadillac” (Stattmusik) and two stunning 12′es on TUNINGSPORK zurich’s dynamic duo returns with a much acclaimed and sweaty hands waited for by many international wordandsound dj friends. Originally displayed on Jay Haze’s internet Community Textone this record got talked about for many months before we finally decided to release it on vinyl. a crackling future retro sound bomb, dry, tough,sonic intimate and on the point beat programmed this is maybe the most “common sensed” release on our more House oriented WNW lab yet.as a bonus pill our favourite “man” JAY HAZE is doctoring some of hios famous rework pharmaceutica: super rough with a bassline ripping like sandpaper, claustrophobic sounds and MARK ” dark sniper” SCHNEIDER firing classic b-boy boasting lyrics straight in yer face.S.i.c.k. ! If this medicine´s not thrillin then you´d propably ain´t enough illin!

DJ MAG NO 37/VOL 1: “Was Not Was, owned by Hamburg's Word and Sound Distribution, don't release that many tracks, but when they do the quality control is always high. 'Ripop' has a really cool bumpin' Chicago groove but in a minimal vein. A bubbling tracky groove made up of simple percussion and a synth riff rolls along before a subtle 303 line sneaks into the mix. On the flip, Berlin-based Jay Haze turns out a bass-heavy remix. Keeping 80% of the original intact, he adds a huge wobbly metallic bassline, which I can see rocking many of the underground floors.”
