Rockets & Ponies. The brand new label of Timo Maas & Santos. Me and my homeboy Santé made the first release!
Adam Port & Santé "Own" EP
B1: Faire des siennes
Its been a long 12 months since Timo Maas & Santos teased us with talk of their new imprint. Well, the boys are back in town and ready to roll out their first official release, and they've given center stage to another deadly duo, Adam Port and Santé.
Port's unique style (Somewhere between the vast perimeters of house and techno) unites with Santé's production expertise (currently co-producing, amongst others, Tiefschwarz) in this Berlin based collaboration. Together they have delivered two supreme cuts on the 'OWN E.P.'
Lead track 'OWN' meets the 60's with the Naughties. Its throbbing drum rhythm and soul-laced vocal make this a certain smash for those hot, heavy and sweaty summer nights.
On the flip the pair work their Voodoo magic. 'Faire des Siennes' with its heady mixture of shaker percussion, tribal drums, wailing chants and shaking bones, make for a trippy concoction and a perfect main-room smash.
An incredible debut release for Timo and Santos' label and perfect example of genius to come... Rock on!
