Where their celebrated collaboration ‘Mutfakta’ set in motion a positive pairing of European House entities, Dirty Dutch founder Chuckie and renounced Parisian Gregori Klosman are back with vengeance for 2012. In a low end outing of acidic swirls and the solid beat play to which Klosman has mastered, the more atypical Dutch sound associated with Chuckie’s usual exploits is replaced with a perfect midway between their respective national hallmarks.
Drawing upon deeper melodic Progressive influences alongside an array of grinding Electro hallmarks, ‘The Numb3r5’ is no follow-up to their initial collaborative outing, but certainly a bold collection of prime European club vibes. With successive releases from Chuckie set to drop on the lead-up to summer and a further collaboration with Qulinez on the cards for Klosman, ‘The Numb3r5’ extends this well-suited studio pairing with yet another solid collaboration to their belts.
