What a hectic summer it’s been for System2 boys Tez Hurst and Danny Hevingham. Not content with being signed to Steve Lawler’s legendary VIVa management agency and adopting a punishing tour schedule that’s taken them across the UK & Europe, they’ve also find time to churn out a veritable onslaught of killer EPs. Taking a look at the size of the tracklist in their latest effort, the ‘Ghetto Loop’ EP, you really do begin to wonder how they find the time to fit it all in…
Title track ‘Ghetto Loop’ sets the tone nicely for the EP, a peak-time jacking beast with pounding basslines and menacing siren wails. ‘Matic’ is on a similar tip, but with a more hypnotic, laid back slant, its subtle melodic breakdown collapses into a whirlpool of delayed vocal FX. In ‘Ready’, an addictive rhythmic drum groove sits over an assembly of bleeps, vocal chops, and a subtly pulsing sub.
The swung garage shuffle of ‘Mine’ is complemented by a huge swelling bass undertow, likely to put the sturdiest of soundsystems to the test. ‘Shady’, with its warm muted chords and glistening strings is an expertly crafted nod to the classic Chicago house sound which manages to avoid veering into the direction of pastiche. Rounding off this wonderfully versatile EP is ‘Ghost Train’, a cheeky Detroit-esque curveball with a throbbing low-end pulse and atmospheric, delay-drenched vocals orbiting in-and-out.
