Next up on the chopping block is a young, Italian beat maker who goes by the name of Weast. He has the unique honor of supplying the inaugural release for Leipzig based label, Velours Records. The fresh imprint is headed up by Rose Record founding father, Luvless and sees the veteran house producer and label head take the reins in his new, solo venture. For our premiere today, we take a closer looks at the A1 from Weast’s new “About You EP”.

“Cocola” is the tune we have and it wastes no time in getting to the meat and potatoes of the track. A funky, filtered baseline sets the pace while a throbbing kick drum keeps things locked in. A lovely rhodes melody floats above and remains ever present throughout the tracks duration. Crunchy percussion builds, layer upon layer as the listener is hypnotized by a throughly deep groove and soulful vocal samples.
