Tommo & Jonno “Efficacy” [Havantepe Emax Potentiation]
Slow burn breakbeat.
Receptor Theory is the seventh release on Verdant Recordings and the first of several scheduled for 2019. The EP sets tracks from Berlin’s Sirko Muller with Ornate Music’s Jonno & Tommo on each side, plus remixes from Verdant favourites RV800 and Havantepe, last seen together on the 2017 Aura EP.
The original Affinity and Efficacy tracks are assured yet subtle, dub-inflected grooves, but they’re treated radically when reinterpreted. The RV800 reshape of “Affinity” moulds it into peak-time tech house territory with a playful 303 bassline. Havantepe changes up “Efficacy” with devastating effect; the remix is a moody breakbeat slow burn with a creeping and growling 303 bassline.
Verdant is managed and curated by Andy Green. This latest release is the first of 2019, coming this month. In support of the release, we’re offering up Havantepe’s rework of “Efficacy,” available to download now via the WeTransfer button below, or here for EU readers due to GDPR restrictions.
