DFEP05 – SOLO – The Big Stef

After his recent release on Claude Von Stroke’s Dirty Bird label, SOLO returns with another Huge release on Mowgli and his own print “Dead Fish”.  “The Big Stef” takes its epic building sample from a recording of a gothic Russian Choir, with a drop not made to disappoint. Dance floor heavy yet tasteful in his signature way,
a great example of the way this guy loves to toy with anything and everything!
The Big Stef remix comes from fellow Dirty Bird producer and one half of Zombie Disco Squad, Nat Self. Taking the track to a later point in the evening, this remix shows why Nat is getting the attention he is right now.
B Side Joga Bola re-touches SOLO’s passion for Brazilian drums and Rhythms. Carnival worthy, this track will be a cert for the festival season. With bongos, squeaks and salsa samples over a pounding drum line, its definitely a track made to get people on SOLOs party vibe!
Remix here coming in the filthy form of a Riva Star rechunk. Voted a few months back as one of IDJ mag’s top players of the year, Riva twists the track up in only the way he can, with his dirty techy beeps and burps. Beefed up drums and a hypnotic driving bass line complete this EP’s in a way Dead
