TWINS – Tassel

CGI Records out of Atlanta has been responsible for some of the biggest dancefloor killers in my deejay sets over the last year or so. Jams by C Powers (“Phoenix Down”) and Jerome (“5”) have been especially lethal. The newest one that is smashing for me has just come out on vinyl and it is by label head Matthew Weiner under his TWINS guise. Touching on both Chicago house’s grit and Detroit techno’s spacey melodies, but with added dub inflections, “Tassel” has a beautiful melancholy vibe that makes it stand out amongst the slew of releases that try to ape those styles unsuccessfully. Definitely worth seeking out for those who love deep music that works the dancefloor.
