PAWSA presents the second release on his Solid Grooves imprint with three broody house tracks including Tiger Stripes on remixes duties.
One of London’s most popular event series, 2015 has seen Solid Grooves evolve into a label with co-founders Michael Bibi and PAWSA at the helm. With his debut release on Leftwing & Kody’s Lost Records reaching no. 6 in Beatport’s Tech House charts, PAWSA’s entrance into the house and techno scene is envious to say the least, particularly as he followed up with appearances on top tier labels such as Green Velvet’s Relief Records and Nicole Moudaber’s MOOD Records.
Up first, ‘Event Horizon’ unleashes a purring low-end, heady hats and syncopated snares for a menacing, dancefloor focused number geared for the afterhours. Undulating kicks and a groovy bassline then join infectious vocal samples in ‘Separation’, before ‘The Shapeshifter’ delves into deeper territories with subterranean notes, reverbed percussion and a playful melody.
Known for his releases on Drumcode and Desolat, Swedish producer Tiger Stripes ties things together with a rolling remix of ‘Event Horizon’ featuring vocal moans, mesmerising atmospherics and ominous bursts of synths.
PAWSA ‘Stage Two’ EP drops on Solid Grooves Records in 26th October 2015.
