2 Bit Thugs

Two smooth, melodic cuts that could find favour with a wide range of DJs

In our recent interview with Dave Seaman, he talked about how "progressive house" has become a dirty word, thanks to the bastardised application of the term to lowest common denominator pop-EDM bollocks.

I mention this now because this two-tracker served up by Russian producer Sergey Vasiliev (AKA Aumcraft) for Incepto Deep would most accurately be described as coming from that place where "deep" and "progressive" house collide, but we're probably not supposed to say that anymore! Still, you know what they say about pigeonholes; suffice to say that the unhurried beats, echoing pads, floaty melodic synth-lines and barely-there vocal fragments of which both tracks are comprised should appeal to anyone who has a love of the deeper, more musical regions of the electronic music landscape.

Perfect for melting into the sofa at the tail-end of a messy clubbing session, or just for a spot of herbal me-time, this EP is like a Radox bath for your ears... and your soul. More, please.
