Cuttin’ Headz returns with a new EP from long-time Martinez Brothers collaborator Argy, entitled ‘The Numbers’ EP and backed with remixes from DJ Skull and Christian Burkhardt.

The impossible to pigeonhole artist, known for numerous quality underground hits, such as ‘Love Dose’, ‘Unreliable Virgin’, ‘Debbiedowner’, ‘Upon Ourselves’, to name but a few, marks his return with “The Numbers” EP. After spending an entire week digging for gems in the basement of a legendary vinyl store, indulging in white label bootlegs and lost classics from the 80s and early 90s, Argy left with a bag full of rare pressings and was immediately inspired to compose his next EP after having spent a year focusing solely on remixing artists such as DJ Hell, Detroit household name Terrence Parker and more.

Riddled with obscure 30-year-old vinyl fragments and noises ‘The Numbers’ EP nods towards the UK Rave scene, early Warp, US proto-house and NuGroove. ‘The Numbers’ EP was all recorded with a live feel and the title cut lays focus on acid bass, dymamic drums and trippy vocals before ‘Tutti Fruti’ employs hip house vocals, swinging rhythms and spiraling synths swells, ‘A.F.T.E.R’ then rounds out the originals with a darker edge via murky stabs and echoing vocal murmurs.

Chicago House legend DJ Skull steps in to rework ‘The Numbers’ next, and as expected delivers high- octane energetic house fuelled by a drum machine workout, the original’s hypnotizing bass lead and sporadic vocal shots before Germany’s Christian Burkhardt stamps his unique mark on the title-track via skippy drums, a snaking bass groove and intricate processing of the original elements.

Argy’s ‘The Numbers’ EP is out on Cuttin’ Headz 30th March 2018.
