The five-track 'Gran Canaria' EP is in stores now
Today's premiere comes in moving pictures form, as iDJ brings you a first airing of the video for Gran Canaria by Flat Maze. It's the title cut from the five-track Gran Canaria EP, which dropped on Berlin-based label Jazz-O-Tech on Friday (9 April).
The clue to Jazz-O-Tech's MO is in the name: the label's speciality lies in putting house, techno and electronic producers together in the studio with jazz musicians. Although in this case, they didn't have to – Tel Aviv-born Uri Gincel already had a career as a jazz pianist behind him when he teamed up with Italian DJ/producer Stefano Mori to form Flat Maze. This is the duo's second release on the label, following 2018's (ahem) Dick Dunker EP.
The hype sheet describes this one as finding “a sweet spot between instrumental jazz solos and deep techno drums”. But you don't have to take their word for it, or ours – make up your own mind below.
Like that? Then find out more at the links below, or click here to order the EP.
