We here at E.A.R HQ consider this record to be one of our favourite releases, not only for it’s amazing quality sound on vinyl, but also for the genre transcending vibe that this track displays. We have had many a debate trying to put a label on what type of music this is. Is it hip-hop? Funk? Soul? House? Or perhaps a bit of all of the above? Who cares – it’s one that we are particularly proud of.
First up is Magnetron – a funky yet intelligent masterpiece that could come straight out of an Acid Jazz collection. But wait! Those tweaky electronic sounds give this record an edge that brings it right up to date.

Next up – Sueños. Which for those of you whose Spanish is rusty, it means “dreams”. And boy, is this dreamy. Sexy but sublime, this has already had a good old airing on the Pacha terrace and at festivals all over the world. Have a listen and you will realise why.

Both tracks have been remixed my the Italian house master Nick Simoncino, giving them an extremely sophisticated classic feel. The protho mix in particular has the 90’s stamped all over it. All four of these tunes epitomise the Summer. Let them define yours!
