DescriptionYou dont get much rawer than a Wadsworth bassline. In Lime and Pink the nu-school Detroit
producer brings his distinct method of techno hypnosis to One Records in a multi-faceted package
that explores a real house vibe and is strengthened by alternative visions from Burnski and jozif.
Kicking off with a stripped down bass beat and echoing female vocal snippet Lime and Pink
initially pulses with the propulsive toughness of techno. Rising up through the dense, naked bassline,
a warping bass synth rhythmically stabs to the groove. When the crisp kick drum gives way to a
warm, deep house sound, its enriched by a choice Marvin sample - endlessly used but sounding
totally fresh here. Evoking varying emotions and intensity throughout, its a record that displays
Wadsworths bare bone talent.
With his Open House Mix, Burnski takes Lime and Pink into moody tech house terrain thats both
smoky warm and a touch on the dubby dark side. Last on the package but by no means least, the
epic Burnski Secret Garden Dub keeps on rolling into the deep with Burnskis signature sexy
grooves and swinging club bounce. Coming from the unstoppable young Northern house brood,
Burnski has cemented a solid reputation on the scene with an impressive string of releases on labels
such as 2020 Vision, Dessous, Real Tone and Hot Creations and many more exciting projects to
come throughout 2011.
Barefoot is a rattling house ride with yet more serious bass, quirky synths and a house music
vocal that brings an essence of the old school. Wadsworths punch is still ever-present amidst the
swirling, hypnotic pads and FX. East London producer jozif delivers a fresh take in his remix of
Barefoot, displaying his distinctive brand of emotionally charged house music, breaking things
down and building to a typically blissful crescendo. With lush instrumentals cascading over a
funked up bassline, jozif reaffirms his innovative production style already shown on labels such as
Infiné and his own imprint, Fist or Finger, co-founded with long time friend Craig Richards.
Kris Wadsworth was outed on the Detroit rave scene aged 12 and is today one of the most
consistently interesting producers coming out of North America. Ardently gimmick-free with genre-
defying and deceptively dense no-nonsense style, Kris has had a string of stunning EPs out on labels
such as Hypercolour, Morris/Audio, NRK and Get Physical. Anything Wadsworth touches has that
rare stamp of authenticity and its been said that hes an artist you can buy from practically
blindfolded. One Records are proud to welcome him to the family.
