Hungarian label Secret Fusion continue a fine start in 2020 with a new EP from the under the radar, but highly accomplished 88Dubs, while Echonomist, SouveQ and Greg Ignatovich all serve up remixes. Attila Bujdoso aka 88Dubs has been making music for more than a decade and counts Fideles, Undercatt and Øostil as big fans. After being the first Hungarian artist on German label Steyoyoke, he went on to release on Traum Schallplatten and Beatfreak Recordings and in 2020 promises plenty more new music. Opener ‘Mature Nature’ is a sublime deep and dubby techno roller.
Lush synth sequences light up the airwaves and take you to a crescendo somewhere in the heavens. It’s an emotive affair for tender moments in the night. Greek-born Echonomist is a European favourite with credits on Innervisions and Watergate. Here he shows off his house credentials again with a remix that breaks up the beats into more broken patterns, with crashing hits and more textured, frazzled bass.
SouveQ then returns to the label after a fine solo single ‘Csucsok’ back in late 2019. His version layers in plenty of scattered percussions retain the cosmic melodies and ups the dramatic levels with some epic breakdowns. 88Dubs then comes correct with ‘Quanta’, with its vast rubbery kicks and skewed, astral synth lines. There are sci-fi details in the grooves and plenty of atmosphere is created throughout. Last of all, Swedish-Greek talent Alexandros Djkevingr links with Russian-Greek Greg Ignatovich for a third remix. It comes after the pair have made their mark with gigs around Europe and tunes on labels like Diynamic. Here they flip ‘Quanta’ into an upright dark disco stomper with withering chords and plenty of macho energy. Secret Fusion continues to define the intersection between house, techno and dark disco with each innovative new EP.
