Last month saw the second release on Barcelona based label, Classicworks, which is run by Venezuelan and Argentinian producers Cardopusher and Nehuen, respectively. After a successful split EP, Split 01, it is Cardopusher who steps out alone with the So What U Want Me To Do EP.
It is fairly obvious from the get go that the inspiration behind this EP comes from all areas of the electronic music scene. The opener 'I Know U Will' is a piano driven house affair with enough energy behind it to get anyone on the dance floor with its thumping beat. This is followed up with a rough techno thumper rooted firmly 90s hardcore with an infectious vocal hook which has landed it in the record bags of everyone from Bok Bok to Doc Daneeka.
Up next is 'The Real Thing' which harnesses a classic US house vocal and takes it on a acid trip across the Atlantic, really pushing the synths to the limit. Lastly is the the acid house number, 'Hysteria' which really does sound like something you would hear coming out of Boddika or Scuba set. Lastly for good measure there is a remix of 'I Know U Will' by label cohort Nehuen which gives it a bit more of a 90's flavour but takes away none of the energy.
The So What U Want Me To Do and Split 01 EPs are available from Juno.
