The latest EP from Utrecht, Netherlands-based electronic producer, Tifra, comes courtesy of St. Petersburg-based label, Snippets. The Mesoamerica EP serves as the first vinyl release for this budding label. Tifra wrote and produced 3 original tracks for the EP, “Mesoamerica”, “Lockdown Movement”, and “Mount Qaf”, two of which receive remixes from rising DJs and label-mates, Marco Lazovic and Ksky, to round out the release.
Track A2 of the EP, “Lockdown Movement”, is a propulsive, magnetic slice of deep house. This track runs like an extremely well-oiled machine, with its opening hit-hats and dramatic, punchy acid-lines cleanly seguing into a gorgeous, chopped-up acid-house odyssey. With multiple breaks and a bevvy of sonic experimentation throughout its generous 7 minute runtime, including a ticker-like synth-rhythm and distorted police sirens, the track never seems to lose its sense of momentum, nor its laser-like focus on satisfying your desire to move your body, whether at home or on a dance-floor.
