One of the things that brought husband and wife production duo Sahin Meyer (aka Linda and Shy Jacobs) together was a shared love for the deeper end of house and techno.
It comes as little surprise, then, that their debut EP World Cup South Africa 2010 is a heartfelt exploration of these genres, so deep as to be almost subterranean.
Opening track “The World Cup Of The Future” maintains a subtle yet insistent beat, with clunky percussion trading blows with a warm bassline, while “I Can’t Go Broke” features looped rhythms set to an atmospheric backdrop.
Remixes of “World Cup Of The Future” come from Berlin-native Eva Be, best known for her previous work on Best Seven/Sonar Kollektiv, and Jacek Sienkewicz, who gives the track a deep techno re-rub.
