Gnork’s Prizma EP (Review) »

The Hizou Deeply Rooted label has been releasing quality music for a while now, with a host of great producers making their mark there: think the likes of Andrés, DJ Aakmael, Rick Wade and more. Their latest sees them stay closer to home, calling on the talents of Hungarian producer, Gnork. A veritable underground star, Gnork has previous on labels such as Unknown to the Unknown, and turns in a killer record here.

The fourth entry in the label’s Special Series features for originals, with the record’s first track arguably also its best. Krka Drive chugs along at over 130 bpm, with its cheerful, hopeful exterior absolutely perfect for this time of year. 14.9C goes deeper in search of kicks, before Dance 18 brings the funk back with a warm, analogue sounds that’s also punctuated with dreamy soundscapes and enticing arrangements. Final track Izlaz meanwhile, serves up a mysterious, catchy vibes closing out matters with a really emphatic edge. Hizou’s modus operandi has always revolved around the championing of top drawer, strictly ‘underground’ producers. Gnork’s Prizma EP very much serves up more of the same.
