Downstairs Exclusive Premiere – Monosoul ‘New Years Day (Iron Curtis and Leaves pres SMPL Remix)’ – Axe On Wax

"unleashing a destructive, hypnotic club filling power"

London-based Axe On Wax returns with another EP, this time coming from Berlin’s Monosoul. ‘The Breaks EP’ is a serious collection of pure House tracks, merging acidy bass-lines with soulful synth melodies and straight grooves, showcasing the aesthetic guidelines of this young record label. Only vinyl.

Label head honcho Lange gave Downstairs the great chance to premiere one of the two remixes included in the package. We’re proud to present to you Iron Curtis and Leaves’ SMPL remix of ‘New Years Day’. The remix is an impressive crescendo, guided by a rolling, rumbling bass-line. Fused with a summery melody it keeps opening and closing, unleashing a destructive, hypnotic club filling power.

The other remix in the EP comes from Peckham-based rising stars Chaos In The CBD, who’s new EP on Rhythm Section we have just reviewed. Hot stuff.
