minz un/mute ep

Finally out, Minz' debut 'Un/mute EP' (Perspectiv Records) is self-described "deep electronic dance music with attention to detail, influenced by techno, house, acid and dub."

Its four tracks share deep, groovy basslines and hypnotic, very danceable beats, while also showing great versatility. At turns one is reminded of Plastikman, Basic Channel and Autechre (to name a few far-flung comparisons that come to mind).

But it's the sound design's richness of detail and meticulous production that makes these tracks work equally well as listening music. The two longer tracks especially will probably not make it to the dance floor uncut. Hopefully they'll serve as 'trailers' for people to listen to the full stories...

Highly recommended!

Check Myspace.com/minzmusic for samples and minzmusic.net for an unreleased track and live dates in Amsterdam.
