DJ W!ldSun Comes After The Rain
As we enter into our 3rd year of running Pathway Traxx, we wanted to raise the bar both musically and artistically and this EP certainly delivers that. DJ W!LD has always been a personal favorite of ours we were over the moon when he signed with us. Fresh of the back of his 2014 Album, When you feel me on his own The W Label, this guy is arguably in the form of his life! With an expansive discography backing up his formidable DJing skills, the accolades he's receiving now are simply long-overdue recognition for one of France's long-serving underground house heroes.
The lead track on this EP comes in two forms, the original mix and more tougher dub version. While the original delivers a slightly more laid back summer vibe as the hypnotic filtered chords provide the perfect backdrop for the hair raising vocals. W!ld's simplistic approach to drums and bass lines deliver that raw power we have come to love from him. This track is almost written for those Monday afternoon Circoloco vibes and you can be certain this will be getting plenty of airtime in DC10 over the summer.
As we flip over to the B-side, W!LD continues to deliver his signature stripped back heat with the playfully named "Get Some Balls!". Once again his heavy raw drums do the work here whilst supported by a pumping stripped back bassline. His cleaver use of layered samples and texture let the mind wonder during the breakdown only to be brought back to earth with a bang when the unforgiving groove drops back in.
Last but by no means least, the EP is rounded off with the stomper that he's titled Jew-Jitsu. Again W!LD shows us that less can and always will be more when it comes to his production. The highly addictive ride and clap in this track leave you literally begging for more. All the while his seamless approach to sampling adds the space and flow that brings this track together.
This rounds up our 6th EP and a true land mark in the journey of Pathway Traxx. As always if you like the music, please buy the vinyl
