Since first joining forces as Clavis back in 2015, Manuel Tur and Adrian Hoffmann have delivered occasional EPs of high quality, dancefloor-focused deepness. Here the German duo return to regular home Freerange with their first outing of 2019. We're not sure whether title track "Boyd" was written in tribute to the late, great New York house legend Boyd Jarvis, but with its jammed-out bass, rushing piano riffs and proto-house style synthesizer solos it could well have been (even if the groove underpinning it all is a touch darker and more tech-tinged than the former Timmy Regisford collaborator would have come up with himself). Either way, it's superb. The package also contains two versions of "Floyd": the druggy, proto-house-meets-Paul Woolford's "Erotic Discourse" flex of the original take, and a slightly more up-lifting and dreamy "Remix" that adds some sparkling synths and choral vocals into the mix with impressive results.
