Italian duo Neverdogs drop ‘Hall 9000’ EP, with Leon and X-Press 2 remixes in tow this June.

Ibiza 2013 saw Tommy Paone and Mark De Gregorio aka Neverdogs habitually smash Marco Carola’s Music On party and play the closing party for ‘El Cierre’. 2014 is set to be even bigger as the techno heavy weight Carola locks them in as exclusive Music On residents for the season at Amnesia. For their ‘Hall 9000’ EP Tommy and Mark join an impressive roster on London-based imprint Decay next to names such as Franck Roger, Cozzy D, Pezzner and Hector Couto.

The astral-influenced original of ‘Hall 9000’ utilises a sample from the cult classic ‘2001: A Space Odyssey’. Neverdogs seamlessly work the spoken word vocal along arpeggiated synth lines, shifting percussion and pulsating bass lines to offer up an organic and futuristic opener.

For the remix Leon leads with space-like atmospherics, shuffling drum patterns and drawn out tones which build towards the spectral vocal sample and a punchy yet subtle breakdown into oscillating bass and submerged kicks.

On the B-side Tommy and Mark deliver a dark and sub-led original in ‘I Took A Lot’, a prevailing pulsating bass line gives it that dance floor punch while whirring modulations and female intonations laced throughout provide that after hours potency.

Skint Records affiliates X-Press 2 step up to deliver a warm re-imagining of ‘I Took A Lot’ utilising rippling drums and hypnotic beats to provide a kinetic house cut geared to get your feet moving.

Neverdogs ‘Hall 9000’ is out on Decay Records 15th june 2014.
