A long and awaited return to todays scene is that of Gareth Oxby, a very active producer since the 90s with numerous Techno, House and Breaks projects among which the prodigious UK label Alien Funk Movement stands out; of which he is the renowned father and founder.
Bosconi is proud to include this eclectic and talented producer in its stable through one of his most sought-after aliases, “4th Planet Side Steppers“. The EP, titled “Warning“, celebrates the UK sound of those early years of which he was one of the greatest exponents and pioneers and which is coming back to prominence today: the foundation of the Tech-House sound, a kind of hybrid dense with spatial and futuristic sounds where electro, dub and breakbeat that merge into the 4/4 rhythm creating a unique and incomparable blend.
It starts with the homonymous “Warning” track, where sharp drum sounds support a galaxy of alien bleeps and textures, transporting you into a pacific trance state, a maze-like and hypnotic dimension that is perfect for late night hours or morning awakenings. The second cut of A side brings a previously released track on Gareth’s own AFM label which has been for long time our secret DJ weapon named “Anti-Matter“, a funky, rolling, ultra-groovy monster track; an absolute Tech House killer tune with straight and unmistakeable effects on every dance floor we have played.
On the flip side the dreamy, sensual and trippy “Phaeton” closes up this three track EP with its smooth vibe and intelligent electro programmed warm beats giving a special touch to the whole record!
