Hot Since 82's Knee Deep In Sound releases the stunning Barrage EP by Mihalis Safras, which is backed with remixes from Russ Yallop and Secondcity.

Greek producer Mihalis Safras has a long standing in underground Tech House music with releases on VIVa, Saved, Suara, and of course his own Material imprint. Here we see Mihalis join up with Knee Deep In Sound, putting him alongside Noir, Mendo, Steve Lawler and Detlef on the roster.

Title-track ‘Barrage’ kicks off the package and in typical fashion he delivers a percussive fuelled, infectious groove with crunchy 4/4 rhythms, vacillating vocal murmurs and a bulbous sub bass hook. The second original from Mihalis entitled ‘Save Me’ follows and ups the energy levels with raw distorted drums, a hooky stab led bass line and diva style vocal licks.
The first of two remixes comes from Hot Creations artist Russ Yallop who reshapes ‘Save Me’ into a low-slung, bumpy house cut with shuffling snares, stuttering vocal chops and penetrating sub bass drones. Defected artist Secondcity then delivers his take on ‘Barrage’ with a more direct house focus, layering looped guitar noodles and an unfaltering bass hook with an upfront rhythmic swing.
