As one of Romania’s finest musical exports, Premiesku (Livio & Roby & George G) have sculptured a stimulating Balkan sound with driving and energetic rhythms that embody their heritage and encapsulate an international audience of listeners. With previous releases on Vakant, Appollonia and Desolat, and now 20/20 Vision, the trio have already flexed their production muscles to the delights of many.
20/20 Vision are now embarking on a new chapter, which has been fore fronted by Premiesku with their latest EP, Jojoman. The self titled opener, which has been heavily used by the likes of Appollonia is introduced with absorbing drum pads and clicking hi-hats that race against misty vocals. Bass-driven Voicegame is a shifting breakbeat groove, that is a perfect tool for splitting open a dancefloor.
Djebali’s rework on the flip of Jojoman adopts a glistening synth that spirals into a kicking percussion, which builds hesitantly into a dynamic Balearic beat, before Guti’s remix of Voicegame takes the rhythm back down to a more controlled pace, still soaked in bass, which fittingly filters out to conclude a solid selection.
Since their inception, Premiesku have constructed their own style of minimal instrumental house music, which is clean and edgy. So many other artists have confronted similar saturated territories, however, Premiesku have perfected the formula and continue to prove why their rhythms are used on rotation.
