2000 & One’s distinguished abode for all things Tech House 100% Pure greet familiar underground advocate and Hungarian groove master Jay Lumen for an infectious new EP. While title track ‘Teach Us’ embraces the aforementioned rhythmic properties that have excelled Lumen’s international appeal, ‘That 60 Seconds’ drives an artillery of deep bass play into a far heavier set display of eccentric beats.
But where the prior build on his familiar hallmarks, ‘Hello May, Hello June’ is the definitive all-around offering of funk induced club stylings that tops yet another strong package from the unpretentious imprint. In a genre that is too often dismissed as back-to-back beat tracks, Lumen provides a collection of skilfully executed cuts that instil a strong degree of enthusiastic energy for club-rooted Tech House.
