Eirwud Mudwasser - SNAKER 010
Since 2013 Tokyo's Snaker label have delighted DJs and dancers with a love of pumping, left-field, disco-sponged deepness. In their first offering since 2016 dips with Samo DJ / Maxxxbass and Mood Hut (note - it feels like artists tailor their releases specifically to Snaker’s “Library-designed” / inspired vision), SNAKER 010 presents quixotic material from Romanian producer Eirwud Mudwasser, aka Vlad-Stefan Matei. A meticulous creator and sharer, his single former release embodies the alternate elemental quadrant of Air, Wood, Mud and Water (combining as Eir-wud Mud-wasser ;]), for Balearic Social in 2015. In SNAKER 010 he refines his balearic inheritance and applies to it steamy / steampunkish dance fervor, gliding from techno to downtempo, cosmic hole disco, mallet and dub interlude, and some Powder-esque bizarro dance frenzy. With its many phases, it is prepped for home listening while also never-leaves-the-bag-ing (why not buy two?).
