Review: After a succession of stellar releases on imprints such as Rebellion, Sapiens and Disco Halal, Tel Aviv-based producer and DJ Adam Ten arrives on Hamburg's Diynamic with the Rollercoaster TLV EP. It does exactly what it says on the tin, by taking the listener on a journey full of dramatic build-ups followed by intense drops - all the while intertwined with musical surprises. First track "Lego" with Amit Aagami aka Mita Gami (Sunrise Kingdom) is a serving of dirty late night electro sleaze with a seriously buzzing bassline, this is followed by the slinky and hypnotic deep house of "Grab A Room' in collaboration with Yamagucci, and closing it out with the hypnotic peak time track "The Beat Machine" which is another joint effort with Mita Gami.
Review: Four irresistible orders to dance here, coming courtesy of Israeli producer Adam Tenenbaum AKA Adam Ten, and brought to you by LA-based Crosstown Rebels sub-label Rebellion. 'We Move' is a mid-paced throbber centred around a fat, squelching bass synth and a "we move" female vocal, 'Mita In Reverse' is a low-slung machine funker with exotic, chopped-up fem vox, 'The Queen' stirs deep, tech, prog and disco house influences into one surefire 3am groover while 'Hamakor' closes the EP on a tuffer, struttier note. The EP as a whole has a far greater funk sensibility than most in its field, and as such deserves checking immediately.
