Piemont – Jump Off (Terminal M)
The prolific and consistent German duo Piemont have enjoyed a spectacular year this far, just as releases for the likes of MOAN, Yellowtail, The Factoria and, of course, their own Plumbum imprint, would appear to suggest. Their latest EP sees them switch their attention to Monika Kruse’s Terminal M for the first time since 2012’s ‘Viewstar’ EP.
As you’d expect from two camps with a well-documented penchant for unpredictable wares, there’s nothing typical about this release either. Bumping, grinding, off-kilter and eschewed works are very much the order of the day, then, with the percussion-heavy original immediately indicative of the fact. Before long, it’s loaded with canny grooves and incessant funk, resulting in a track that’s sure prove an irresistible winner on the floor.
The always prolific Italian producer, Hollen, then turns the original into an altogether different beast, as he leans on a number of intoxicating and robust tech-house facets to lead the charge. Piemont’s own ”Fairplay” then culminates the EP with a bassline that’s as sweltering as it emphatic. All in all, it’s an EP that sees the boys play to their true strengths, with even fore sure fire battle weapons that are destined for the floor. Business as usual, then.
