Jay Lumen – Get Yaa! EP
Jay Lumen had a busy 2012 — releasing about ten EPs on a range of labels from Drumcode, Tronic, and 100% Pure — under the techno and tech house umbrella. The Hungarian star is already at it again in 2013 with his latest EP Get Yaa! (a title we’re going to forgive), out earlier this week on Great Stuff Recordings. Get Yaa! is techno done right — equal parts swinging bass, vocal chops, and storming percussion. On this EP Lumen bears his pure techno chops, but also does not alienate the groove that only a funky house track can provide. “Warehouse” is especially pleasing; dropping in a bold bass line surprisingly early in the track and perfectly pairing snare rolls with other old school effects. Great Stuff graciously hosted the extent of the three-track EP below, and you can click past the break for a purchase link.
