Javier Viudez – Heart Of Oak EP

April 12, 2011

Today’s release and the labels’ first vinyl of 2011 comes from a young man that we know very little about. Javier Viudez the Majorca born London resident who has been quietly and steadily forming a reputation on the production front. Releases on Stock 5, Serialism, Mean and Essential Reload have spread the word, but its his “Heart of Oak” EP that is really set to put him firmly in spotlight. Lead cut “Teasing De Ser” ft. Rudolf has already won great praise and chart support off an early copy from Dyed Soundorom. Now its ready for the rest of to enjoy and become fully immersed in. Deep, groovy and with a sultry twist, its a perfect choice to open the ep. On the flip “Pop Issue” matches its sparse production and spoken vocal to perfection. We think even Mr Johnson & Ms Heather will agree that it really is musical electricity. Feel the surge. “Guess You Gonna Dance” is more of a statement than a question. Its wonderfully wonky bassline is a hypnotizer for the hips and works brilliantly with the filtered breakdown and rasping hats. Finally we are treated to the digital exclusive “Rivieri” ft. Silva. Wickedly wobbly once again and with the added lure of Silva’s delicious vocal, this is most definitely not to be overlooked.
