Haling from Asunción, LPZ's Ariel Soler, Javier Rodriguez and Jorge Carron have spent the past 4 years gradually putting Paraguay on the dance music map. For what's proving to be their watershed year, May saw the trio release the well-circulated '1983' EP via the Body Work imprint, shortly before delivering an era-themed mix for the fashion rag, Dazed & Confused. Now, following on from a recent collaboration with HyperDub's LV, the South American's make their debut on the long serving Loungin' Recordings.
'The Benedict & Grace EP' combines two purpose-made productions specifically crafted to align with the West London imprint's heritage for house at the deeper end of the spectrum. Cloaked in hardware reverb, A-side 'Benedict' takes deep house to the doors of driving dub-techno, while 'Grace' represents a refined garage roller, more respective of Loungin's output in the early-2000s.
Over on the flip, Rotterdam's increasingly revered bruk-step lynchpin C.O.N.E converts Grace into an industrious slab of mechanical grime, before the Porto-based Trikk applies his low-end house sensibilities to Benedict by stripping it down into a slab of deep yet futuristic minimalism.
