Officially due out next Friday, November 17th, Greco and Mad Villains are releasing a collaborative EP on the legendary Strictly Rhythm imprint.
The last 12 months have seen Greco on a meteoric rise to the top of the list of upcoming house producers in the United States. The end of last year saw a release on Kerri Chandler’s Mad Tech, alongside Dantiez Saunderson, and was followed up with releases on Kevin Saunderson’s KMS imprint, Country Club Disco, and his newly founded Rawsome Recordings label.
Mad Villians has taken a similar trajectory, notching releases with KMS, Country Club Disco, Mad Tech, Simma Black, and Rawsome just this year alone along with a healthy tour schedule.
The two come together on the three track The Music EP. The title track features Aisha Zoe on lyrics, an artist the UK-based Mad Villians has linked with before and boasts a chilled out rhythm for relaxing the mind and highlighting Zoe’s soothing sound.
‘Slay’ has got more of the same classic house feel that was introduced on the first track, this time with Ke on vocals. It, too, is on the smoother side of things knowing that both artists are capable of some serious jackin’ house rhythms. However, both ‘The Music’ and ‘Slay’ are more than capable of having some heads spinning later on in the evening.
Things get a bit more uptempo on the EP’s closing track, ‘Lil’ Bit’. The track sees the duo pit some of that jackin’ flavor against a series of smoothed out synth rhythms and a soft vocal sample, making for a fun piece of dance floor material overall.
