RiZa - Zuzwang / Sunday Mélange

The first signings from Slovakia’s RiZa a.k.a. Richard Zagiba, whose previous releases on System, Stripped & Seta (no alliteration intended) have earned him a reputation as a solid tech-house producer. First up from this EP is ‘Zuzwang’ which combines a Chicago inspired bassline, vocal stutters, and heavily filtered sequencers with a positive spoken message. On the flip is ‘Sunday Mélange’ which harnesses and big sharp acidic bassline and metallic percussive elements and locks them into a tight immersive groove. The break features an LFO workout, which provides an ecstatic release when the groove returns. Masterful.

Think positive. Be happy. x
