Brand new label New Violence Records is kicking things off with a tasty new release from Italian tech-house producers Fideles. Their ‘Hidden Lover’ EP has already had huge support from artists that include Stacey Pullen, Leon, King Unique, Jozif and more. Although the EP as a whole is very much tech-house orientated, the title track has a deeper, melodic feel to it – you could certainly expect to hear ‘Hidden Lover’ rattling the sound system of a club at peak time. In fact as you listen to the rest of the EP you begin to realise that this isn’t just another label pushing out tech house, it’s blurring the lines between tech house and techno and doing it well. ‘Better Thing’ is next up and another example of the genre bending skills of the duo as it develops from a jumpy, house track into a darker, techno piece with piercing saws that creep in through the build. ‘Slopping’ and ‘Soul’Nu’ are more towards the tech-house end of the sprectrum, but pounding bass and cheeky melodic elements creep in, making this a very interesting EP.
‘Hidden Lover’ EP by Fideles is released on New Violence Records 29.9.14
