If you’re a fan of deep, shimmering house music, then you need to acquaint yourself with 2Sox. Founded by ex-Bis member and Mylo collaborator, John Clark aka Debukas, the label has only issued two EPs, but both have been utterly essential.
The third release on 2Sox sees a new series begin called ‘Oddsox’, which is seemingly in reference to the ‘oddball’ nature of the men behind the music. Inviting Croatian producer TELESKOP to get involved, the first track ‘Eta Carine’ is a bumping, upbeat jam with icy-cool stabs and a rubbery, bouncy bassline. On the flip, Glasgow favourite, Sparky, gives ‘Eta Carine’ a mystic makeover, with horizon-stretching synths and shimmering pads taking it to another dimension.
Tom Churchill, one half of Glasgow’s analogue house duo, The Nuclear Family, turns in a beautifully chilled cut called ‘Sidetracked (Remix)’ which sounds like a Balearic dream, with light and airy keys drifting into the sunset. Label head, Debukas, meanwhile, does what he does best, crafting a subtly seductive groover which employs lazy pads and all the finest bleeps and bips from his mighty home studio.
Oddsox Vol.1 is available early November on 12” and digital formats.
