Mancunian duo System2 are up next on VIVa MUSIC, with six highenergy tracks that wouldn’t have sounded out of place at The Hacienda.
“We've been waiting a long time for this production to be released and we are so hyped for it now. The tracks have come from some inspirations like the Karlovak series by Mr Tophat and Art Alfie. We've maintained our System2 sound with a twist in some tracks, going for a more hypnotic feel in some of the music. We can't wait for it to be shared with the world” - System2
Title track ‘Everybody’s Freakin’’ sets the tone for the EP, closely followed by the gritty bass and catchy snares of ‘We’re Here’. The intensity drops with ‘Waiting For It’and ‘Hypnotic Carpet’, but both still deliver a whirring groove. The package is completed with the two digital extras ‘Home Time’and ‘Keep Going’.
o+ System2 is a relatively new alias for a previously well known duo. They had a loyal following before taking on this new identity, with releases on Get Physical, Nervous, PIAS and Cécille Records.By reinventing themselves, however, they have been able to create a different sound which is also proving popular.
o+o Last year saw Steve Lawler sign them exclusively to VIVa MUSIC,after gaining strong support from Loco Dice, Hot Since 82, Dubfire, Jamie Jones, Shonky, Richy Ahmed, Shaun Reeves, Patrick Topping and Adam Shelton among others.
