After having produced records that landed on well-known imprints such as Above & Beyond’s Anjunabeats and Sebjak’s Bibliothèque Records, Özgür Can returned from his little break from the music world to release this two-track EP in Marcus Schossow’s label Code Red Music.
The EP opens up with “Left 2 Dust” that sets the tone for what’s next with its ruthless bassline.
Its raw sound attacks the listener’s senses with sharp drums and waves of synths. In fact, this is the Swedish’s favorite track. As he told 1001tracklists, “Left 2 Dust” “was first a hip hop beat that I made for a friend of mine who’s a rapper, but we never finished the track…”. Then years later he came back to discover it on his laptop and thought the hook was too cool to waste.
“Left 2 Dry” is the main track, the most finesse.
In contrast to its evil twin (as the Swede calls it), “Left 2 Dry” features mellow melodies that join forces with a grooving bassline for a quintessential house hit.
