Review

Six months after the successful release of Jagged’s EP “Ten to Twelve"on Bonzzaj Recordings, we now present the follow-up single “Biasca” with a remix from Berlin based producer Knarf Skipson, who has previously released on labels like Quintessentials, Sthml and Deep Vibes. This EP includes four deep yet raw tracks somewhere between jacking Chicago and Detroit House. The first track “Biasca” is named after a small town lying at the junction of three valleys in the Italian corner of Switzerland, where wooded mountains rise 1500m to the sky. “Biasca” immediately starts with bumping vibes and lead on in a Detroit flavour. Once again the trademark sound of Jagged comes to the fore: analogue equipment and MPC. From Guttanen’s glaciers spring the river Aare. It’s the last village before the Grimsel Pass, and its name has its origins in the phrase ze den guoten tannen (by the good firs). It’s a reminder of happiness. This second track is a soulful vocal house number with the lovely voice of Berne based singer Lily Yellow. Deeper House with wonderful Fender Rhodes and kicking bass drums and snares. “Varen” is an idyllic spot in the glacier-covered canton of Valais. It is the source of some of the finest wine in Switzerland, to perfectly accompany the local speciality, raclette. Through here flows the River Rhône all the way to Lake Geneva. Driving beats, minor chords, melodic synths and eclectic samples mark this third track on the EP. Knarf shows with his remix his definition of house music: Percussive workouts, old school 4/4 beats and cool vocal samples. Driving rhythms with clear references to US American house music such as Moodyman or Theo Parrish. In a nutshell, here’s some old shit for new times. This record definitely brings back some dirt, samples and emotions into today’s house music. Limited edition as usual…so you better watch out.

Like the cheesyness of the first three tracks. "Varen" then means serious (peak-time) business. Really nice release. Will play!
