Doublet facebook page
The first five Holic Trax releases turned plenty of heads, and building on that momentum is
the sixth release which sees the label head Tomoki Tamura team up with Italian Third Ear,
2020 Vision and Defected associate Tuccillo as Doublet for a three track EP written in Ibiza
using plenty of great gear including Akais, Moogs and various Roland drum machines and
synths. What’s more, the vinyl edition will see 500 limited colour 10”s pressed up for
the real collectors out there.
Tomoki’s trademark fusion of deep, tech, electro, minimal and soulful influences has won
him many admirers while Tuccillo has excelled with his classic house releases recently
so this is a fine pairing. And they don’t let anyone down, kicking things off with
‘Discovered Night’, a muscular bit of deep house that pays homage to classic Chicago
sounds with its busy claps and tightly knotted bassline. The details are key here – subtle pad
patterns, surreptitious chords and plenty of musical warmth.
The vinyl only track ‘Cosmic Sign’ is another engaging cut with a tight arrangement of loose
drum hits, bendy synths and shuffling drums. It’s busy and kinetic but never grows exhausting,
and despite being such a full track, still retains plenty of sonic dynamism and contrast thanks
to the skills of the men producing it.
‘Synthonic’ is for the more peak time moments of any DJ set – it stands tall with a punchy
undercarriage, some lovely rolling organ melodies and slinky percussive moves that demand
you dance along. Digital buyers also get treated to ‘Cosmic Sign (pad export)’.
Just a year after first starting a label to go with the esteemed Holic music events in London,
Holic Trax is already carving out its own niche in the electronic music world.
