Already a regular studio collaborator with Richy Ahmed, Michael Jansons AKA Jansons strikes it solo on the fourth release for Richy’s flourishing Four Thirty Two label.
The Mode EP finds Jansons following up from recent chart topping original releases and remixes for Knee Deep In Sound, Lower East and his “Panic At The Disco” single on Leftroom, which is their best selling single on Beatport to date. It’s a bumper 4 track EP, showcasing and encapsulating the many shades of Jansons unique sound, and bolstered with a remix from aforementioned collaborator and label boss, Richy Ahmed.
The Original Mix of Mode comes correct with plenty of classic house music chops; frenetic synth keys jab away over a rubbery, percussive groove for a sophisticated and energizing club cut, whilst Ahmed plumps for a real old skool flavor on his remix. Chugging drums and a tight bassline give more than a whiff of classic Windy City house vibes on this killer remix.
Two versions of “Colours” are packed with hypnotizing string riffs and bumpin’ percussion, with the “Alternative Mix” edging it in the more stripped down techno stakes, whilst “Sequential” find Jansons in disco mood, with rolling drums, string stabs and a deadly bottom end groove that wraps up a fine release from this burgeoning British talent.
