Building on the success of his debut Warp EP in August 2013, Washington DC resident Fasika is back with another standout package that again subtly shows his love of house pioneers like Kerri Chandler and Eric Morillo.
The US based producer here offers up four tracks that are designed for plenty of dancefloor action, but that are far more than just functional tools: Fasika imbues his tracks with a ton of charm and oodles of loveable human soul.
Up first is Anthropoda, a nicely elastic bit of house music with a taught bassline, bulky beats and robotic, machine-like synth sounds that bring a rigid funk to proceedings.
Lighthouse is even more beefy and quick in tempo, with a rich and nimble organ bassline propping up filtered vocal sounds and truly slamming kick drums.
Track three is The Tropics, a rolling My Love Is Underground style banger with classic airy hi hats, swinging drums and snatches of female vocal that will really turn the dancefloor on.
Finally, Parkway proves Faskia has a great grip on his tools once more, with dancing rubbery basslines, raw drum fills and tons of old school flavour all informing his rich, fiery tracks.
