About This Release:
Teng launched in 2012 with 'AKRASounds Vol.1 & 2' by label head Nick Woolfson under his AKRA guise. Picking up support along the way from the likes of Chicago Damn, Delano Smith, Will Saul, 6th
Borough Project and DJ Deep. This stands testament to the high quality and attention to detail instilled in the label from its initial movement. Here the label steams in with more solid material to put it on the map with a phenomenal package from Clone / Rush Hour artist Neville Watson, who's trippy, analogue, acidic house cuts have earned him a highly praised reputation within the underground.
Here the release opens with the original version of 'One Four Green', which was initially released on Andy Blake's, World Unknown imprint in 2011 and has been relicensed here due to popular demand. Watson employs the use of his trusty 707 to create a raw, shuffling rhythm while a hooky electronic bass drives the melodic movement alongside warm pad lines and resonating acid style synth shots. Next up is the Deep Space Orchestra remix, the duo's gritty productions have found their way onto the likes of Quintessentials and Home Taping Is Killing Music, and here they deliver yet another powerful, energetic interpretation. Embracing their ability to create soulful, emotive music with insistent, ever-evolving melodies that smoothly play off one another and punchy, loose drums adding an infectious swing, this is classy, low-slung house infused with warmth.
Next up is the Perseus Traxx aka Nigel Rogers mix, the self-proclaimed hardware aficionado provides yet another weighty rework dripping with analogue warmth. Rogers picks up the pace slightly with a more driving feel, the rock-solid progressive groove built upon busy drum-programming and a penetrating bass carries the weight, while an amalgamation of synth lines and fluttering pads surreptitiously meander around it. To close the release Johnny Aux, one half of production outfit Paranoid London, offers up a final mix of 'One Four Green' as a digital only extra, the mix opens with a cutting melodic depth that blossoms for several minutes before Aux strips back the groove to a simple drum and bass driven vibe. The latter stage sees strings re-introduced while subtle variations to the envelope of the bass tones throughout creates an ever-evolving dynamic.
This is yet another outstanding release from the Teng imprint and a clear-cut sign 2013 is going to be an interesting prospect for the label. Neville Watson's 'One Four Green' is out on Teng 18th March 2013.
