Review on: 2XM – 2am Rendezvous (Nail Shop)
New London label The Nail Shops' last release (the magnificent “I Am Maniqin”) has been quite a success so expectations were high for the follow-up on this really exciting imprint. Now it (the new release) arrived, it is “2am Rendezvous” by 2XM and it keeps all promises: For “2am Rendezvous” the duo 2XM, brothers Liam and Ben Murray from Christchurch/New Zealand, made four tracks of cool House Music characterized by a tight sound way above average, a strong affinity for Jazz and fresh ideas for an indeed well-trodden terrain. Four tracks altogether, two of them tend to the more housey dancefloor-friendly side while the other two come up with a smoother feel. “2am”, the first track, (obviously) refers to the clubs peak time and justifies its name with compelling grooves and a deep-digging bass line topped by euphoric harmonies and the mentioned jazzy vibes that guide the track into higher spheres. The other banger (relatively spoken) is “Rendezvous”, classic House stuff with vocal samples, stomping beats and swinging keyboards. I bet you look good on the dancefloor, “Rendezvous”. “Control” in comparison is more relaxed, laid back, with an intimate feel of unexcited warmth yet there’s still the pulse of a House beat, spiced up by some really nice percussive elements. “Mbria” has a remarkably transparent production, a bass line as intense as it is interesting and a carefully constructed, quite fragile structure of breaks and transitions that makes this track something special. Good stuff from New Zealand, so with “2am Rendezvous” The Nail Shop delivers another hit record and is definitely one of the labels you should know at the moment. Well done everybody.
