For our second release, Silence in Metropolis turns to Paraguayan producer P Lopez, whose deep house with a distinct urban flair (on labels like Dogmatik and Keep Up) has won support from the likes of Maya Jane Coles, Alex Arnout and Tom Findlay of Groove Armada fame.
The title track "Shame" has an infectious groove and punchy kick drum at its core set off against 909 snares & hi-hats. The percussion is skippy and garage leaning whilst the nimble bassline bounces up and down the scale and takes you with it.
Fast rising Hot Waves producer and Leeds based DJ Matt Fear delivers a sure-fire dancefloor bomb of a remix which is catchy but classy at the same time. He imbues the track with more drama and elasticity, raw machine lines lacing up drum fills, weird FX and a killer bassline finished off with breathy vocal cries.
B-Side track "Keeping Up" has plenty of celestial key patterns up top as a tight kick clap combo powers on below. Propulsive yet rich with emotion, it's a stylishly tripped out and late night house track that will have the right dancefloors locked in the driving deep house groove.
This time the remix comes from DJ Hell and Alex Niggemann endorsed producer George Carrasco aka Matches. His remix stumbles and tumbles through rich drums, classic sounding percussion and an aqueous and mysterious ambiance that always retains your focus.
