Portugese producer, Accatone, drops the 'A Reason Not To Try' EP via the ever on-point, Hudd Traxx, imprint this September, backed with a remix from house aficionado, Matthew Herbert. Accatone aka Jose Reis, has been steadily evolving as an artist over the past four years, racking up a string of releases for Roots & Wings, Apparel Music, and Dabit Records. Here he joins the Hudd Traxx roster, slotting in alongside the likes of Rick Wade, Rolando, Sascha Dive, and DJ Sneak to name but a few. The release opens with the original version of title track 'A Reason Not To Try', a contemporary house cut, built around raw, loose drums, emotive vocal lines courtesy of Accatone himself and an infectiously hooky bass line. Reis, rides the groove out with these fundamental elements throughout the tracks near seven minute duration, while easing in an organic, marimba style melody in the focal stages, creating an intriguing record full of captivating sounds. Up next we have 'One Of A Kind', a dark, mood-driven excursion, employing bright, shuffling percussion, a classic organ hook, and a bublous bass hook, alongside ethereal chords, to create an understated, intelligent closing cut. With such an interesting original version, Matthew Herbert was an apt choice on remix duties, here Herbert reworks 'A Reason Not To Try', stamping his unique twist on the cut, with penetrating saw-wave bass tones laying the foundations, while glitchy synth sweeps and heavy modulation processing keeps the dynamics in a ever-evolving state, and makes for an intriguing listen as expected from this undeniable talent. Then lastly to close the single, we have 'Walkin & Talkin', which sees Accatone venture down a different path, embracing a more direct house aesthetic as opposed to the more experimental feel of the A-Side, straight 4/4 drums lead the way, while a simple yet effective combination of sub hits, gritty bass stabs, Accatone's unique vocals and playful melodic hooks fuel the musicality and drive of the record.
