  • Description Antoine Garcin, AKA Acumen, is perhaps one of the hardest working men in the music business, although not for the reasons you might expect. Juggling studio-time alongside a career in pharmacy and fatherhood is no easy task, but he's risen to the challenge with previous releases on Get Physical, Diynamic and Upon You. It also hasn't compromised on the quality of this latest release for leena music, the nubile younger sibling of the almighty mobilee. leena has been steadily dispensing underground house and techno gems for over half a decade now, with a strong ethos on nurturing new talent from label friends and family.

    Having simmered away at the periphery for quite some time, it would be misguided to say that Acumen is a newcomer, having garnered support from the likes of Richie Hawtin, Laurent Garnier and Loco Dice over the years. He's also proven himself as a proficient selector, with gigs ranging from Berlin's Panorama Bar to Studio 80 in Amsterdam.

    The EP's title track goes in strong with a peaktime, tech-house march through bright, single-note chord blasts and a frantic rolling drumbeat that commands the listener to the nearest dancefloor. "Internal Jungle-, on the other hand, combines chunky, low-end grooves with melancholy vocal refrains snatched from the ether, all underpinned by thick, undulating slabs of warm analogue bass. The EP ends on a high with "The Bug-, whose effervescent filtered strings and warm plucks serve to induce a sense of languid euphoria, one which is amplified by a fantastic vocal performance from Ruede Hagelstein.
