Premiere: Simic – Dust

Irish label Major Problems are only on their fourth release, but they’ve already shown a breadth of ideas and a willingness to flirt with a range of styles across the house and techno spectrum. Following two releases from the Levon Vincent-approved Terriers and the shadowy Compassion Crew, the label eases gradually into 2015 with a 12″ from Seattle-based Simic. The mood is expansive, as each track captures a thrilling, fast-paced groove, while maintaining a dream-like atmosphere — a delicate balance, yet rendered exquisitely. That mood is particularly evident in “Dust”, which we have the privilege of sharing with you here exclusively, ahead of its release on April 6.
