Leaning into our inbox like the Tower of Pisa but with a B-boy stance is an avant-garde release coming from Italian imprint ‘The Dreamers Recordings‘, which has spanned 12 years influencing the scene with event organizing until crossing over to the label side of things. Upon this release, we’re treated to a vehement four track EP sculpted by also Italian duo, Synth Ethics, namely Tommaso & Nicolas, who have also dished out some tunes on imprints like ‘BNC Express’ as well as ‘Critical Records’. Not being their first release on ‘The Dreamers Recs’, ‘Synth Ethics’ present us with the ‘Do & Die’ EP.

Drawing the curtain on this display is S/E’s take on ‘By Polar’s‘ ‘Deep Down‘ tune which originally is a more chilled electronic vibe which is then switched up to a more brooding baseline and a little menacing percussion work. The title track ‘Do & Die‘ makes it’s stance as the second offering on this EP draped in all of the funk and sinister with the vibes, guaranteed to always find its way into people’s sets. Stunner of a tune! Which is then followed by ‘Recognize‘, which is a take on retro vibes tinged with a modern touch to it. Then lastly is ‘Ragtag‘ holding down a stellar closing to this EP with well orchestrated chaos in it’s mellow like but still aggressive nature. Big up to the mandem, this EP is pure gold!
