Cabaret, the Tokyo based party and record label by Yuki Masda and So Inagawa are really on a roll right now with great releases by TC80 and Binh recently. This time it's the turn of Ekbox which is comprised of NYC expat in Berlin Evan Baggs with Katsuya Sano. "Tidally Locked" is the kind of rolling and liquid minimal deep house than fans of Ion Ludwig or iO (Mulen) will dig. This one's infectious and bound to rock any dancefloor: sure thing! The bouncy and bleepy "Seezumay" is your more standard tech house affair, backed by some wicked 808 bounce and snap. On the flip also is the hypnotic and sublime "Conversation", a functional and loopy DJ tool for the most part that should serve most DJs quite well.
