about

Lowriders Recordings is proud to present HALP's Tic Tac Toe EP.
Our crew-member HALP pushes himself to new heights after his Leek succes with his first vinyl release Tic Tac Toe EP.
The cheerful title track with the likes of Kissey on vocals is amazingly sticky and feels like a compendium of 30 years of electronic music, with seemingly effortless transitions between detroit house, booty bass and future music. The vocals of Kissey (Asplund) take us back to simpler days with her warm and seductive hypnoticness.
Baby treats you on a 2 step/house bumper which will kill you. The big chord synthline carrying the tune and vocal chops sprinkled on top!
Bek is like your 808 swingbeat ghetto track: redundancy to the bone covered with bubbles and some essential vocoder science. Waiting for an oiled muscle dude in lycra with a mullet body poppin'.....
SDUK makes Baby into a dancefloor stomper, whereas Starkey's interpretation of Field (which appeared on our Beatitude compiler) adds and enhances drama and suspense from the original, be it unheard, making it more melancholic and classy in a new suit.
And then there is the magical Krampfhaft remix of Tic Tac Toe, a worthy last track, schizofrenic, driven and recognizable as a mutated Juke screamer.

Feedback:
Hudson Mohawke:
Tic tac toe is a beast
Subeena:
There are various parts of Bek I really like, that would be my pick between the originals....Kramphaft remix is sounding really good.
Daedelus:
This HALP release has some inventive sounds and excellent remixes....
… but those remixes help clarify and propel the tracks into more engagement.
DEV79:

Slugabed:
Halp’s best stuff yet! this stuff longs to be played loud in the cluuuub!
Om Unit:
Really liking Krampfhaft’s remix the most but overall solid!
Kid Kameleon:
It’s great, best thing yet from Halp – Baby’s my favorite, got a spin on NYE in my set. The Krampfhaft remix is great too.

about

Lowriders Recordings Rotterdam, Netherlands

With Lowriders Recordings we're on the looking for freshness.The music we like is between styles not your plain stuff. So we wanna hear the space between the genres like dubstep, funky, abstract beats, hip hop, skweee, electronics, 8bit, house, etc.
Main idea is to get some amazing edgy stuff from all over the world.
It should be skewed, crooked, mad and freaky as hell!
