Schmutz have provided us with a quality new tune ‘Splint’ which is part of their ‘Splint’ EP.
Schmutz have been carving away at the scene over recent years making a name for themselves across the Belfast scene, never mind being regulars at the highly regarded Panorama Bar, where they bring their fusion of underground music, from House to Tech House to the deeper Techno sounds to the regulars.
The blend of music is what make them so attractive and the inspirations as to the music behind their tracks is truly exciting, with the latest track coming from the Northern Irish talents, ‘Splint’, taking hold of the Chicago House feeling, and what a quality tune this is, already gaining support amongst some heavyweights in the scene and becoming a highly regarded track.
As already mentioned, it has that Chicago House like style which has a serious amount of raw energy flowing from it, with the deep growling bass line driving through the track, as the layered piano melodies bring the energy and bring that soul to the track. With the sketchy and sliced up vocals featuring on ‘Splint’ also adding to the track and it’s atmosphere, each element has been careful crafted and carefully produced to provide something which is going to infect those on the dance floor, and ultimately go down a treat. A real beauty.
The ‘Splint’ EP also sees two remixes crop up on Extended Play and the first comes from the label regular Neville Watson and this takes the track into that synth led deeper atmosphere, and what a real banger this one is. The synths provide that soothing backbone to the track while the intricate sounds have been layered in perfectly with the track and as a whole, this one is sure to be one for the more intimate deeper sets.
Last, but not least, is T-Bone and Slurrp who go about taking ‘Splint’ to the more bass-y region of House, into that more Tech House style with a bass line to really applaud, as it drives away at the track and dominates the track. It’s going to get a reaction from the crowd, especially when the drums kick in on the track within the drop.
A quality original from Schmutz and hopefully more to come from them in the near future. You can buy your copy of the ‘Splint’ EP here.
