Global underground present the first fruits of their quest to undercover the next generation on producers in the form of Bambook ian Israeli-born producer now living in Stockholm, who has picked up a unique collection of musical influences along the way. He clearly remembers the significance of GU001: Tel Aviv, the seminal Tony de Vit mix that put his city indelibly on the electronic music map in his youth. Now, having had his demo selected from hundreds of submissions, the enthusiastic artist has a dream release of his own on GU. ‘Naya Bengi’ is a brooding techno cut oozing with atmosphere that growls, chugs, clicks and rolls its way forward.
Also new to GU (but far from being undiscovered after her storming releases for Carl Cox among others) is the rapidly rising Nicole Moudaber, who brings a more elastic bounce to the remix, creating a smooth late night, head down groove.
The release continues GU’s recent form of putting out killer hand-picked singles from exciting producers new to the label.
Naya Bengi- Our verdict.
The original version has a nice crunchy techno feel with some tribal elements being weaved in and out, whilst it’s all held together with a driving bass line that gioves the track some needed pace. On the remix is Nicole Moudaber with a more deep house rework that retains that driving bass. Of course we’ve heard some much more epic things from GU over the years, but this is a solids first release from some fresh new talent.
