In the decade since it was established, Solomon's label has gone from underground outfit to the home of Boiler Room-leveling anthems. The most notable thing though is that it hasn't lost its identity along the way -and it still puts out killer underground house. Dee Montero's "Halcyon" is a classic Diynamic tune, with soaring, dramatic strings taking off over a building electronic groove. It's exactly the kind of tune that the label is known and respected for. On Thyladomid's "Exit", the mood changes - crashing percussion and underpinning a cacophony of acid-led trippiness, while Raxon's "Nebular" is a menacing, minimal affair, resounding to rolling snares. Closing the release is Lopezhouse's "Dark Place", which resounds to an acid-soaked throbbing groove.
Raxon hails from the United Arab Emirates but now calls Barcelona home. His new one for Maceo Plex's always reliable Ellum Audio here is absolutely hot; following up previous releases on Sincopat and NM2. On "Majoris" he goes for a grinding and wonky tech house cut that's geared for some mind melting moments later in the night and takes its cues from brazen electro influences; massive drop on this one! Second offering "Sin Control" features some epically soaring arpeggios over a slinky yet adrenalized groove and was our favourite: expect to be hearing this one a lot in clubland in 2017!
