As the master of 1605 and an inherent ambassador to Slovenian Techno, Umek returns to Tomcraft’s Great Stuff Recordings alongside homeland peer and familiar label asset Mike Vale with ‘Chosen’.

Fuelling the track with a fatal concoction of deep grooves and minimalistic lead work, ‘Chosen’ is as chunky and rhythmically refined as you would expect from such a strong collaborative duo. Laced with distant vocal samples and churning bass manoeuvres throughout, this double-threat Slovenian endeavour is a prime example of why traditional House is still worth pursuing amid the somewhat stateside biased 21st century Electronic music explosion.
