    We’re welcoming some new faces to the Heist family with this release: JKriv & Peter Matson, who present their ‘Bigtime EP.’ We all know JKriv
    from his excellent Razor-N-Tape label and his work as a producer and remixer of all things soulful. JKriv has this excellent ability to lay down an
    organic and original sound and it’s that sound that felt like such a great match with Heist. Peter Matson is the front man of NYC post-punk afro
    band ‘Underground System’ and if you’ve heard their music, it should come as no surprise that the first outing of the duo is full of high notes.

    The lead track ‘Ewesse Ye’ occupies a space in dance music that leans towards Balearic nu-disco and proto-house, but the live elements, African
    vocals, and chants and cosmic synth work make it a track that’s hard to pin down to just one style. What we can say is this: it sounds huge without
    really trying to do so. It comes naturally, just like the vocals of Cameroonian singer Samy Love, who lays down his verses in style, with a clear nod
    to groundbreaking African artists like Ata Kak and Professor Rhythm.

    The remix comes courtesy of the multi-talented Auntie Flo, who completely flips the original into a deep afro-tech monster of a track. Dark synths
    and spaced-out percussion flow along throughout the track and the added layer of Marimba work complements the vocal and vibe of the track
    perfectly.

    On the flipside, we’ve got the slow burner ‘New friend’, which brings us back to Balearic territory. There’s a certain trance-inducing feel to this track
    with its looped chords and its layers of horns and solo’s. This is some serious eyes-shut-feet-in-the-sand material.

    The EP closing track is ‘Bigtime’. Built around a growling bass and subtle chants, this is perhaps the most clubby and in-your-face track of the
    pack. It’s the horn section that takes center stage here and you really feel that vibrant energy that must have been present in the live room when
    this was recorded.

    The overall recording quality and ear for detail on this EP is outstanding and looking at the list of collaborators, you can only have respect for the
    way the live and electronic world are blending on this record. These tracks will no doubt add a bit of sunshine to any dancefloor, living room or
    festival.

    Yours Sincerely,
    Maarten & Lars
