Quenum: Imperial Street EP Label: Mooch
This is an impressive debut release from a brand-new label, Mooch Recordings. It's really fun to have exclusive access before the public does. Considering all of Quenum's work with multiple lables such as Crosstown Rebels & Cadenza, this release bodes well for the future of Mooch. The EP itself is a tribal-influenced house release with really punchy beats and out-there percussion layers. Mad congas at some points. Also, within the tracks themselves the styles continually evolve. I'm a fan of the "Imperial Street" remix by Tim Xavier (#3) and I also liked "Be Sweet We Me" (#4) an edgy urban track with intense spoken word.

1. Straight-up tech-house house with lots of tribal accents. Mad congas at various points, kind of theatrical at the end. Interesting and certainly doesn't stick to a consistent pattern.
2. Even though this track is named after Our President, I'm not sure it has much relevance. This is a wild & wacky tribal-inflected track with all-over percussion, weird breaks, crazy synth stabs.
3. Straight-up punchy tech-house (remix of #1). Really slammin' beat, swirly waves & neat synth pads, has intense reverb work during the breaks
4. Tribal-influenced dub house with an intense spoken word, snappy percussion and chunky beats. The punchy percussion really works with the urban adge of the spoken word.
