Motek Music is a London based label with a new release from Just Her who joins the imprints impressive roster already including artists that range from Martin Landsky to Marc DePulse.
Blending elements of Jazz with breakbeat rhythms, this eloquent release has all the style of what Just Her has released on the likes of Anjunadeep, but it’s got a raw edge and old school vibe.
Just Her is back with an original release following recent appearances on influential labels such as Anjunadeep, Crosstown Rebels, Global Underground and her own Constant Circles.
With a fusion of intricate beats and emotive chord structures, this EP has the melodic elements that fans of Just Her will be familiar with, but these stripped back cuts break away from what some might consider her traditional sound.
Also on the EP are remixes from My Favorite Robot and Vibeke Bruff. My Favorite Robot are a Canadian duo famed for releases on their own namesake label along with other high flying imprints such as Click Records, Last Night On Earth and Hypercolour.
Norwegian artist Vibeke Bruff is back on Motek Music after recently dropping a release made in collaboration with ZiaLand, bus this time she is back in a solo capacity.
The original mix of “Quiet Anguish” is first on the EP with sensual vocal textures, ethereal strings and flutters of piano intermingle between the broken beat percussion that forms the foundation of the track. Second of the original’s is “The Signs”, which is on a similar vibe to its predecessor but with added depth and a stripped back sound filled with extra atmosphere.
My Favorite Robot provides a downtempo remix of “Quiet Anguish” with an electro-tinged bassline adding extra weight to their minimal version. Vibeke Bruff closes the release with her dark and atmospheric version of “The Signs” which strips the track to its core leaving only the key elements needed for the dance floor.
