Gummi EP by Loods
Classic and Steel City Dance Discs artist Loods joins Patrick Topping's Trick with an exceptional three-tracker entitled Gummi EP.
Raised in the coastal and industrial town of Newcastle in Australia, Loods cut his teeth in Sydney before relocating to London in 2018. Dropping sell-out records on longtime friend Mall Grab's Steel City Dance Discs label, Loods has also made appearances on a select handful of other influential labels in the meantime: "Walking Away" on Classic, which became Annie Mac's "Hottest Record" followed by regular rotation on BBC Radio 1; a collaboration with A-Trak on his Fool's Gold Records; being tapped by Dusky to remix Chrissy on their 17 Steps imprint; not to mention returning to Steel City Dance Discs with "Pure Bliss Meltdown", a peak-time Italo house burner that became Pete Tong's "Essential New Tune".
Powerful kicks and rhythmic bongos open up "Hot!" as piercing vocals, laser-like effects, and a catchy organ inspired synth to operate throughout. Shuffling drums and soaring pads then form the scintillating "Gummi", an ever-evolving number with sultry bass and subtle piano riffs. Tying everything together, bubbling arps and tantalizing melodies form the rich and otherworldly "Proto".
