|MH-063 Vuurwerk - Plus EP
Vuurwerk deliver the Plus EP, the second is a series of releases from the dj-based version of underground act Jealov. "Teen Angst" picks up right where their first EP left off. After establishing the track with a slow thumping eerie grind, the track suddenly kicks a stuttering tech-house beat around a chopped vocal left over from the first part of the track. The short and beautiful "Desire Come" transitions into the garage underpinnings of "Desire Go" - however this being Vuurwerk, the track maintains a certain abstract quality that leaves you both emotionally unsettled yet not able to resist moving to the beat. "U$$$" kicks off with keyboards stabs that would feel at home in the earliest deep house tracks before a series of twisted samples and hard drums pull you back to realize that this is a truly modern track. "Dresses" grabs a garage vocal snippet and twists it beyond recognition chopping the line "I can't get you out of my head" until the track is stuck in yours. "Shadows (No, No, No)" concludes the Plus EP using some of the same combinations of darkness and light that drive the rest of the EP. Once again Vuurwerk has delivered a series of tracks for the world's most risk-taking dancefloors.
|This new EP ‘plus’ is a real beauty. - Get Hyped On This / Super fresh six-tracker by London-based Bass Music outfit Vuurwerk. Dubstep with some nervous IDM and references to Ghettotech, Ambient, and a healthy dose of leftfield Pop. - Sven Swift
|Sorry Sepalcure, Low Roar, Summer Camp, US Girls… We got new stuff to put on repeat. We’re talking about the new Vuurwerk EP of course. For those who don’t know them yet: Vuurwerk is a Belgian electronic DJ/Producers trio. You could catch a Vuurwerk show/dj-set at the amazing Bozar Nights last weekend or even in the future you can see them live as Vuurwerk or perhaps as their alias Jealov (soon as the support for Das Racist at De Kreun)! With this Vuurwerk project, they want to aim at the dancing feet of hipsters all over the world. With their Burial like beats and haze they are pretty succesfull in it. Proof? What about their first Ep “Me”. It got a very high rotation here at TRB (James Blake – Enough Thunder, what’s that? Never heard of it, too busy listening to “ME”) and after a few spins, we are convinced their new EP “Plus” will do this again. This time we even got 2 more tracks, which makes 6 damn good tracks. Teenage angst must be my favourite, or wait no, “Desire Go”. Or wait the other 4 tracks… Just to show you: not a single bad track. Hipster heaven bitches! - The Rusty Blog
