Amanda Brown’s not-house hothouse 100% Silk has announced a new EP from JMII.
Barcelona’s Aster, made up of JMII and Pettre, first popped up on Jamal Moss’ Mathematics label with last year’s Tormenta Del Desierto EP, notable for the title track’s sluggish, spiky take on disco-house. Earlier this year, they took a lateral step onto John Talabot’s Hivern Disc, releasing the exceptional ‘Danza’ (which, in turn, got a rattling remix from Ital). Although the Aster discography is slim, it’s already responsibly for some of the finest lo-fi house of the 12 months.
In not-entirely-unpredictable news, JMII has now signed to 100% Silk, fast becoming the de facto home of twinkling, rough-edged house music. As Playground note, the Nueva York EP will feature four new tracks from the now Berlin-based producer.
Nueva York will see release on October 20 on 12″, with a digital release due on October 30. ‘Danza’ is included below.
1. Nueva York
2. Fiesta Música
3. Els Burrell
