Wollion – Santa Cruz

Wollion - Santa Cruz
Four:Twenty kick off 2011 with ‘Santa Cruz’ by Wollion, an artist in ascendance thanks to sterling work for Mood Music, BluFin and many more as well as his collaborative Lemon Popsicle.
Having kicked off his production career in 2005, Wollion is a relative newcomer but one who has used his five years of releases to hone his production and style to the sort of quality which has won him countless fans from main room jocks to the deeper proponents of house.
‘Santa Cruz’ see’s the German producer deliver a smooth, stab driven houser which fuses modern house sounds with a clipped, garage-esque aesthetic which fits perfectly. His other original offering on the package, ‘With You’ comes from a similar angle but injects some Wiggle styled tech-house funk into proceedings.
Matthias Meyer and newcomer Teva add their own twists to ‘Santa Cruz’, with the former delivering the slow burning hypnotism while the latter ups the bass and adds further skip to the rhythm.
This is a no-nonsense, classic 4 track house EP which delivers in spades and adds yet another must-check release to the impeccable FourTwenty catalogue.
