Presk – Saluki EP

Presk

Amsterdam based Presk release’s his ‘Saluki’ EP on Doc Daneeka’s Ten Thousand Yen Imprint today. Presk has been kicking it since 2011 and is known for his own unique wave of style, a collection of different sounds that blend and mix to make an original musical niche. He is recognised to be influenced by the old school sounds of London garage and the techno wave of Berlin, while also bringing in his own love of disco and house music, producing the EP ‘Saluki’.

The ‘Saluki’ EP is very original and it would be hard to separate each track as every song stands alone, each in its own element and genre. You might think the EP is a collaboration of various artists but you will be mistaken.

The first track ‘Saluki’ is our favourite. Coming in with a dirty baseline and bringing it back up with that jacking sound; ‘Saluki‘ is one of those songs you will have on repeat. The track progression is brilliant, complimented with some nice string work and fresh minimal vocals.

The minimalistic essence of ‘Saluki’ is preeminent throughout his EP. ‘Vigor’ the last song on the EP is very minimalistic and deep, it is highly influenced by the sound of London garage while still borrowing that vibrant techno sound associated with Berlin. The gritty ‘MOD1’, laced with a retro essence builds this grimy mechanic feel while ‘Rais’ could be seen as ‘MOD1s’ younger brother as it shadows ‘MOD1’ with the same grimy mechanic atmosphere, but still not bold enough to exhibit the vibrant sounds that ‘MOD1’ showcases.

Presk demonstrates his aptitude to entice listeners and seduce them with his mixture of sounds and creative ability to blend influences into this great EP. Stream the full EP over here.
