Zulu - EP (MH 002)

The Stoosie

MH 002

The debut release from Ukrainian artist The Stoosie arrives on the Los Angeles-based Makehood label this Fall. Three tracks of masterful drum programming, indomitable basslines and enough creative samples to keep dancefloors afloat and home listeners willfully engaged. With each effort coming in at around seven minutes, The Stoosie’s club proclivities are obvious, but each song on Zulu is far more than the average tool, instead comrpised of rising and falling movements and an unwillingness to kowtow to dance music convention.

Opening up Zulu is the commanding eponymous track, a gorgeous balancing act of spacious sound design, a forceful bassline and sparkling synth and effect work, all coming in at a loping pace that demands full body immersion. “Khalifa” is centered around a transportative female vocal sample, the mysterious voice weaving its way through muscular kicks, a quick, earworm melody and crescendoing blips and effects that take the track to dizzying heights. Zulu is closed out by “Maartkare”, the most stripped back track on the EP and an effort that puts its funky, hip shaking bassline fully forward in the mix.

As an opening statement, Zulu puts The Stoosie in a category of producers focused on transcendent sounds as much as dancefloor efficacy, to write fully fledged songs as much as he thinks about club spaces. Only the second release on Makehood (after Anthony Mena’s “Ortega” single), Zulu represents a willingness to look outside of the box and to unite artists from disparate backgrounds and geographies.
