Whilst renowned democracy champions Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin bend muscles across diverse theatres of operations worldwide, artistic collabs between Russian musicians and US outlets keep going full swing. Next up on Tram Planet Records, a label hailing from Nashville, Tennessee – usually better known for its legendary blues and rock ‘n’ roll scene, we find rising Moscow-based production duo Locked Club, responsible for a solid debut 12″ last year on Private Persons.
Out now, the four-track ‘Lomay EP‘ unleashes the power of lashing lo-fi snares and quaggy acid bass crimps with optimal efficiency. Sealing the A-side, our premiere – ‘Sluchilos’‘ – is the kind of filthy weapon to bring a dancefloor to fever pitch effortlessly. Rustling up a tonic elixir of jacking drums, inlaid vox whispers and unabashed sampling (the chances you haven’t heard this catchy melodic line before are very limited), the Russian pair deliver a proper chemically unstable club heater, fully set at blowing the tiles of the roof and busting soundsystems by the dozen. WOOF.
Lomay EP is out now via Tram Planet Records, pre-order a copy from Bandcamp.
