Having taken a trip to the UK for release number 004, Marcin Czubala's Your Mama's Friend heads back to its native Poland, to catch up with label regulars, Viadrina.
Konrad Slazyk and Mateusz Kazula are the fresh-faced pair hailing from the banks of the River Odra. Having made a crushing impact with their debut release, the 'Better EP' earlier this year on Pets Recordings, Viadrina have been working away tirelessly in the studio refining and polishing their sounds and skills. An endearing innocence can be heard in their music and their versatile, warm and uplifting style is immediately attractive to the ear. Matching that aural lure with an impressive and mature use of 'bass' has seen them create some of the smoothest and funkiest tracks of recent times.
Their "Shining" ep, the label's second release, is still one their most popular to date. Today the duo unveil their latest work, "Popsong" / "Tomorrow". The A side sees Viadrina dropping some 80's break-beats, warm R&B vocals, wrapped in a warm layer of bass. On the remix are another duo who are currently enjoying a blazing run of form off the back of their recent ep on Exploited. The Adana Twins stay true to the track title, upping the 'Pop' ante with their driving electro bassline.
On the flip "Tomorrow" drops its silky vocal, handclaps and gorgeous synths before again being bedded by their subby bassline. Label chief Marcin Czubala delivers his vision of "Tomorrow", brilliantly bringing together some Motown'esque drums and percussion with modern uplifting synth chords. Perfect for this summers outdoor parties.
