A DJ, producer, and label boss at the top of his game, Sidney Charles continues to showcase his talents as a leading name within house music. With his own signature take on the genre so widely recognizable, yet a sound which also continues to evolve and develop, the German's rich catalogue boasts recent releases via the likes of No Art. Moon Harbour, and Do Not Sleep, with his own Heavy House Society imprint welcoming material via the likes of Djebali, Okain, Sakro, Tripmastaz, and Locklead to name just a few. Next up, late-January welcomes a label debut to kick start the New Year as he heads to FUSE's LOCUS imprint to deliver his four-track High Pressure EP.

Title track "High Pressure" opens the EP in style as Charles introduces a slick blend of dubby pads, funky-fuelled basslines, and infectious vocal hooks, whilst "There Is No Time" takes things up a notch, introducing soaring leads, slinking drums, and punchy kicks alongside an epic, warping breakdown crafted for peak-time dancefloors. On the flip, "Onda" welcomes a dynamic drum workout as skittering percussion and shuffling hats lock horns atop of sweeping melodies, before closing the show via the commanding, murky low-ends and warping synths of the final cut, "Jove Loy".
