DescriptionSometimes its easy to be sceptical when it comes to collaborations. After all, each producer has their own way of working; their own distinctive style. Logic suggests that the sound of short-term musical partnerships should be one of compromise, not innovation. But since when has creativity had any regard for logic? Håkan Ludvigson & Oovations EP title track is a compelling piece of tech house sinisterism. Rubber-band rhythms send dizzy synths fizzing across glitchy percussive effects and spectral vocal samples. The restless, rumbling bass synth will rattle the teeth of all who gather on the club worlds most popular dance floors. But the most striking element of this track is the structure, which sees Lose Control building enticingly before bringing its listener carefully back down to earth. The perfect rise and fall. It should come as no surprise. Here we have musical minds of pedigree. Ludvigson has been producing since 2008, in which time he has been endorsed by Tiësto, recorded an album and founded Substream Music Group a collection of labels releasing everything from indie-electro pop to downbeat electronica. It was this enterprise that brought these producers together last year when Oovation remixed Ludvigsons July. Oovation, real-name Peter Bonaventura, began producing his own tracks in his native Germany at the age of 19. Just one year later Unusual Sound released his debut EP, which unveiled a style informed by pioneering artists like Nathan Fake. Indeed, the warped synth pans of Lose Control create an aural landscape of kaleidoscopic expanse, tipping the hat to Fakes distinctive, dubby sound. B-side We Dont Give A Fuck is as brash and boisterous as the name suggests. With busy synths gliding across meticulous, hip-shaking rhythms, it will sate the thirst of the more melodically-minded without alienating those who relish the strong, relentless rhythms at the core of the tech house genre. Ludvigson & Oovations rich colours and immaculate rhythms are tricky to resist. Yes, its easy to be sceptical when it comes to collaborations. But being inquisitive is much more rewarding.
