This And That Lab is the label project of Davide Squillace and the new release is a deep and techy journey with a mysterious atmosphere, and stripped back, melodic grooves.
Following releases that have featured the likes of Matthias Tanzmann, NiCe7, Nicone, Anja Schneider and Butch, the new release on This And That is from Matteo Spedicati who produced at AMAM Studios.
Italian artist Matteo Spedicati comes fresh from his recent EP on Hot Creations, and has also released on other imprints such as Amam, plus Great Stuff Recordings. Along with his solo productions, he has also collaborated with many great artists including Alessio Mereu, Joseph Capriati and Mendo.
The release also features a remix from Brazilian artist Althoff, who is returning to This And That following a recent label debut earlier in the year. He has also featured music on Rancido Music, Plano B Records, Appetite Records and MoonShake Records.
“Prelude To A Makeout” opens with pulsating bass notes that rise into a hypnotic lead sound as the filter lifts to expose the notes beneath. Rippling with bubbling modulation, the acid-tinged track is an uplifting cut of stripped back tech house that at times overlaps into deep techno territory.
“Olvidar Eliza” is second of the two originals on the EP that uses broken rhythms and mystique to set the scene from the very first beat. With trippy sound design and slow building eloquence, the delicate sonic textures weave a psychedelic tapestry around the deep and melodic house groove.
Finishing off the release is Althoff’s remix of "Olvidar Eliza", which has a more rigid four to the floor kick rhythm, and an uptempo groove in comparison to the original. It also exposes the guitar sample and makes it a more prominent feature apposed to an atmospheric texture. Still hauntingly mesmerising, this version provides a refined rework drawing focus on DJ friendly elements.
We hope you enjoy this track as much as we do.
