Premiere: Green Ink – Caribbean Speedboat

Altered States Records is a new imprint based between Berlin and Hamburg. Run by three close friends, the concept for the label was developed over the course of the past year. Now, they’re now ready to unveil their first record, an EP by one of the label co-founders, Green Ink.

Green Ink dropped an EP a few years ago on Highlife, a subsidiary of Glaswegian favourites, Huntleys + Palmers. ‘Family’ demonstrates that the producer has been hard at work crafting slick dancefloor cuts since then.

Our pick from the producer’s new EP is ‘Caribbean Speedboat’. Evoking the tropics in more than just the title, this is house music of the breezy variety. However, there’s no shortage of low-end pressure here as well as hypnotic vocals and percussive grooves.

‘Family’ is scheduled for release 6 August via Altered States Records. Order a copy from Bandcamp.
