Paperman EP by Defaultman & Sapurra
Dreamteam pairing of Defaultman and Sapurra collaborate on this highly impressive 3 tracker for Poker Flat Wax. The two native Moscovites have collaborated frequently before, and with this vinyl only release, the juices are really flowing.
Defaultman aka Thierry Tomas is known for his quality outings on labels such as Dessous Recodings, Nite Grooves and more. While, Sapurra, better known as DJ Sergey Sapunov, has been on podcast duties for RTS.FM, Propaganda Moscow and 20/20 Vision already.
'Paperman' kicks things off - a slinky mid-tempo groover with an edge. The tight drums keep the rhythm ticking over while dub fx and a thick bassline add the drama and suspense.
On the flip comes 'Groove Tutorial' - as fair a name as any when the programming is this good. The beat shuffles and chugs along, always staying fresh and interesting, while a minimal layer of other instrumentation adds depth.
'Lessons Cost' rounds off the EP, a full jazzy-house excursion that showcases the producers’ wide ranging talents and ear for rhythmic excellence.
