Honey Badger Records seemingly keeps piling on the heat year after year. The label, which was founded in 2014 by JNS is one of the oldest and most well-known record labels in Seoul. The releases on the label to date straddle the line between house and techno, while maintaining a clear sense of forward-thinking dance music.
For Honey Badger’s latest release, they are re-joined by South Korean producers Wooseok Choi and Minseop Lee, collectively known as Two Tone Shape, with their Every Minute EP. The EP, which marks the first release of the 2022 for both Honey Badger Records and Two Tone Shape, showcases the impressive depth of the duo’s live-programmed productions. Each track on the EP features a unique sonic flare, ranging from expansive breakbeat, deep & slow-burning house, as well as rave-leaning techno.
The second track of the record keeps up the introductory pace set by the opener. Persistence of X is an expertly crafted house music gem. The bassline conveys an indisputable bounce while nestled between a kick that drives the groove home. Two Tone Shape pays homage to classic rave samples yet keeps things interesting with synthesis magic that the duo seems to do again and again.
This release continues the positive trajectory that both Honey Badger Records and Two Tone Shape are on.
