Brighton-based producer Meho comes to the Spanish label with a two-track EP

Brighton's Omar Meho serves up a tech-house two-tracker for Gran Canaria-based Revival Records.

On the A, Strawberry Jam itself is quite a pacey affair, with a complex, muted bassline and twitchy percussion topped with a languid (possibly slowed-down?) male spoken vocal informing us that "things are about to get strange in this party". There's also a breakdown that comes quite early on in the track and foregrounds a descending acoustic guitar riff, which will definitely help it stand out in a set. Flip it for Engagement, which – with its chunky, garage-y bassline, more straight-up 4/4s and dreamy pads – operates more on the deep/tech-house cusp.

There's no great reinvention of the wheel going on here, admittedly. But what you do get are two very solid, very playable cuts that'll move bodies on dancefloors for sure, with Engagement nudging it for yours truly.
